Destination Ogijima



This is the plan for today.

Note the unusual angle from which the picture was taken. I think this was the first time I got to see Ogijima from there (i.e. from the boat to Naoshima)

  1. Did you get there? Plans have a way of changing when there is a baby involved I seem to remember! I love to see photos of the sea. That’s one thing I do miss living in central France. Until 2006 when we moved here, I’d always lived near the coast in different parts of England and Ireland.

    1. We went today indeed. Baby and Mom stayed at home, I went with my parents who are currently visiting.
      Yes, I’m really excited to live by the sea, my whole life I wanted that to happen and it never did before (even in Floride I lived 100 kms from the coast).
      Even now, I live 6kms from the coast and I think it’s too far. 🙂

  2. I hope it’s okay to ask this on the blog page, but I’m going to Japan at the end of May, and I was wondering if you know if any of the Seto Naikai islands have ryokan or minshuku. I’ve been to Naoshima, Shodoshima and Shiraishijima, and enjoyed staying on each of them, but I would like to try new islands too.

    Thank you,


    1. It’s ok to ask, but I don’t know how much I can help.
      I’m not sure about Ryokan, but all of the islands I know (Naoshima, Teshima, Ogijima, Megijima and Shodoshima) have minshuku for sure.
      However, I can’t really advise you of any.
      On Ogijima, I know three, but I don’t even know their names except for one (Madoka) because it’s also a restaurant where I go eat almost everytime I go to the island. If you go there, make sure you tell them the French guy who comes at times sent you. 😉
      On the other islands, I just know that there are some, but nothing more. Sorry.

      1. It’s still a help–if I have a name, or at least know there are some, I can search better. If I get to Madoka, I’ll be sure and say you recommended it.



        1. You’re welcome, sorry I can’t be of more help.
          I hope it’ll be possible to read about your trip somewhere. 🙂
