Ushimado is a small costal town located on the Seto Inland sea. The town holds a lot of history and charm. It is a quite laid back town located in the countryside where you can see and experience the true nature of Japan and Japanese people, which one can rarely feel while in the bigger cities like Osaka/Tokyo. The local specialties for food are Ebi-Meshi, which is shrimp fried rice, as well as fish/shashimi. Ushimado is also home to many temples as they were an integral part of its history in the past. And the locals here are also very friendly creating a good atmosphere, which can help one feel included within the local community. If you are looking for a place to relax and take a step back from the bigger cities then Ushimado is the place to come to.
