Ushimado Town

The Jewel of the Seto Sea

Brief Introduction

This historical trading hub has been transformed into a resort town with thousands of visitors attracted to the wonder of the coastal views.

When you enter the town, especially from Route 28, you will notice that there is a mixture of dwellings, from typical Japanese-style homes to seasonal vacation cottages. Whether you look up into the hills or focus your attention along the coast, you will see that people are clamouring for their place in this paradise by the sea.

Access: Take the JR Ako Line from JR Okayama Station to JR Saidaiji Station. Take the Ryobi Bus bound for Ushimado (Minami Line) until the last stop.
