Setodacho, located at the geographical center of the Shimanami Sea Route, is a small town comprised of two islands – Ikuchijima and Koneshima. The steep slopes of this island realm enjoy rich sunshine, making them ideal for lemon growing.

In 1963, annual production of the fruit reached 900 tons made this Japan’s top lemon growing district. The area at the approach to Tatara Great Bridge, a large structure linking Setoda to Omishima Island, long ago earned the nickname of “Lemon Valley.” In May of each year, this is the scene of a beautiful landscape of white lemon flowers blooming in the midst of the fresh green leaves of spring. “Setoda Lemon CHU-HI” (a distilled spirit highball) is blended exclusively from the juice of Setoda Lemons. Must like the invigorating winds gusting through Lemon Canyon, this beverage is loved for its fresh and bracing taste.
