This exchange facility is so charming! It really gives you an idea of what Ainoshima is like!

Shima no Eki Ainoshima
Here is their special "Butter Chicken Curry!"
I went to "島の駅あいのしま" (Shima no Eki Ainoshima). It is located near the Ainoshima Tosenba (Ainoshima Ferry Terminal). The "島カフェ あいのしま" (Shima Cafe Ainoshiima)," which can be found on the second floor of the facility, serves lots of tasty treats, including curry, hamburgers, and kakigori (shaved ice). I decided to order a shaved ice that was packed full of mango! It was so delicious!

Shima no Eki AinoshimaThis is the Ainoshima Hiji Koro Burger (lit.: Ainoshima Hijiki-Croquette Burger). When you bite into the burger you will be able to taste hijiki (dark edible seaweed), which is one of the area's most famous products!

The souvenir store is on the first floor. It is full of cute cat-inspired goods and products. Just looking at their merchandise is a lot of fun! There is also a huge cat-shaped mirror! Apparently its the world's biggest! You'll definitely find yourself drawn to this huge, unique mirror!
