Since ancient times, it has been said that ogres were afraid of peaches. It has also been imagined that this belief is related to Momotaro, who vanquished the ogres. (“Momo” means “peach” in Japanese.) the legend of Momotaro developed in Okayama, which is famous as a peach-producing region thanks to its beneficial climate and soil.
Peaches are synonymous with Okayama, and not only are they delicious but they are also an auspicious fruit. This is a power spot where you can pick them, so why not get some as a souvenir?
