Moooo! Bar opens Sunday, June 1....

The Moooo! Bar opens tomorrow! Are we ready? Of course not! But that's okay because good things come to those who moo. We'll surely be ready by then. Afterall, we have 24 hrs....

In the meantime, check out Amy's article on Shiraishi Island in RocketNews24 where you'll meet some of our resident vegetables, including Daikon Bob:

See you soon on Shiraishi Island!

Coming Soon: No.s 18 to 26 on the Shiraishi Island Pilgrimage #japan #setonaikai #setoinlandsea

Our second Shiraishi Island Pilgrimage Clean-up was a great success! Thanks to all the volunteers who came out both Sundays to help clear the pilgrimage for another year of journeying to the 88 sacred sites on the island. I will continue blog posts introducing the route of this 300-year-old Buddhist pilgrimage so that you can come out and experience it for yourself. So keep posted for the next installment, which is numbers 18 to 26! Here is a hint of what that part of the route has to offer:

Our first Moooo! Bar video on Vine (and first ever video on Vine!)

(To stop the video, click once on the video screen. To get it to play again, click it once.)

Thanks to everyone for a great Golden Week holiday! Golden Week for us is something equal to "Let the cows out of the barn day" in Europe, when the cows get their first taste of spring after a long winter and kick up their hooves! The Shiraishi cows productive and managed to get the Moooo! Bar up and running! Over this holiday period, we welcomed many spring visitors to the island: kayakers, hikers, campers and plenty of guests at the Shiraishi International Villa, all who enjoyed Moogaritas and Pina Mooladas on the beach in addition to Seto Inland Sea sunsets and nightly bonfires. What a great way to start out the 2014 season!

Also, this is my first video on Vine! Not the best videography, I know, but hopefully better ones are to come! To get the video to stop, just click once on the video screen. If you don't click, it'll endlessly loop the 6-second video (apparently, one of the appeals of Vine videos). Vine makes it easy to show you what's happening on Shiraishi Island--in just 6 seconds! Stay tuned for more videos of Shiraishi Island and the Seto Inland Sea, Japan.

Note: The Moooo! Bar was open only for Golden Week holidays. It will open again in June (weekends only) and July and August (every day).
