Access Map

The English Club is located in Hinase, Bizen city of Okayama Prefecture.
It takes about 2 hours from Osaka by train or car.

Since it is only a 5 minute-walk from the JR Ako Line station, Hinase, access by train is very convenient.
Hinase is a beautiful town full of nature, overlooking the calm waters of the Seto Inland Sea.
With the abundant seafood and regional delicacies here, you can enjoy various kinds of food.

I believe it is a place that will impress not only foreigners but also Japanese people.
Please feel free to visit!

Kamei Bakery

It’s an old bakery 15-minutes away on foot from The English Club.
The founder brought the shop from Dalian China after the war.
After roaming about the shopping arcade just around the corner, you will suddenly feel a sense of nostalgia surrounded by the sweet aroma.
Their famous deep-fried buns, cream buns and eclairs are 15cm long, the size of a child’s foot!
Their cakes and pastries are also beautifully aligned, perfect for takeout.
