A fun stop while exploring Suo- “Oshima” Island near Iwakuni base!
They have a small jam making factory on site which is fun to watch through the windows!
They have a gift shop where you can sample many of their jams before you decide which one to purchase
My personal favorite jam is the English tea leaf infused apple jam - it is delicious!
Their cafe has a great drink, dessert and light food selection.
In one nook of their cafe they have a very cute little child’s wooden kitchen set along with book shelves to keep the kids entertained while you dine. They even have a little rocking horse for little children too!
The telescope inside the cafe is fun to peep through and spy on whats going on at some of the surrounding Seto Islands in the distance!
Lovely views from your table overlooking the ocean!
Pet friendly if you have your fuzzy family with you as they do have “pet parking” hooks for pet leashes in their outdoor seating area.
My kids and I love to go after the cafe to run around on the beach across the street from the cafe. Its a lovely view looking out at the ocean and back at the shoreline!
They have a lot of seasonal specialty items on their menu as well.
