    Getting to Setouchi

    by Rabbityama Updated May 24, 2012

    There are 3 stations in Setouchi. All of them are located on the JR Ako Line, reachable from Okayama to the west and Banshu Ako Station to the east. Each of these stations provides access to different sites (Oku Station's are not all within walking distance of the station, but they have buses to the sites as well as taxis. Taxis are also the most convenient way to reach the Bizen Osafune Token Village from Osafune Station although walking is possible).

    Osafune Station: Bizen Fukuoka Museum, Fukuoka Historic Houses, Kyoisan Myokoji Temple, Bizen Osafune Token Village (Bizen Sword sites), Jigan-in Temple, Yukie Shrine

    Oku Station: Oku Hometown Museum, Kadota Shell Mound Historical Park, Yumeiji Seika and Yumeji Sanso, Joenji Temple, Anraku-in Temple, Komyo-in Temple, Ushimado (Olive Garden, Harbor, Honrenji, Cultural Museum, etc.)
    Buses to Ushimado pass the Yumeji sites and pathway to Joenji on the way to/from Ushimado.

    Odomi Station: Yokeiji Temple

    (There are more sites but these are some of the most popular/famous)
