Travel Tuesday: Dishing Through Setouchi Japan’s Distinctive Dining Scene

On today's Travel Tuesday I'm taking you back to Japan's Setouchi Island region. While last week's post was focussed on wellness, today we will dive into the culinary scene. 

When one thinks of Japan’s Setouchi Islands region, visions of pristine beaches, sparkling blue waters and a thriving art scene might spring to mind. However, this peaceful, authentic region of Japan, which spans fully 700 islands and seven prefectures surrounding the Seto Inland Sea, also boasts a diverse climate that yields some ancient—and even delightfully quirky—culinary experiences.

When visiting this fascinating country, be sure to titillate your taste buds with a serving of “hidden sushi.” While visually simple at first blush, turn the so-called “Bara Sushi” dish upside down to reveal a hidden underbelly rife with gorgeous ingredients.

Travel Tuesday: Visit the Onsen in the Setouchi Region, Japan

Traveling to Japan is definitely on my bucket list. I'm a huge fan of Sharla from Sharmeleon/Sharla in Japan, Chris from Abroad in Japan (sliiiight crush on him. thanks British accent), and of course Norm form Tokyo Lens. Experiencing this beautiful country through their eyes/lenses gives me a bad case of Wanderlust. 

Last week Japan's Setouchi region was brought to my attention, and I love what I see! Even though I sadly haven't visited there myself yet, I want to share it with you.

Setouchi is a city located in southern Okayama Prefecture, Japan.

Visiting an onsen there is pretty high on my to do list, besides, of course, visiting Tokyo and other urban parts of Japan. It’s been a long road but now, more than ever, we are ready to embrace unique healing experiences in a whole new way and the Setouchi region of Japan is truly the wellness center of Asia.
