Ushidō Travel: Gyokusen-ji 玉泉寺, Shizuoka Prefecture

May 30, 2010

Gyokusen-ji Milk Monument

In Shimoda City, Shizuoka Prefecture, the temple of Gyokusen-ji served as the first US consulate in Japan.

But we at Humor-Us Japan honor it because it is the place where milk was first consumed in Japan. (It is also the place where beef was first consumed in Japan. But we prefer not to dwell on that.)
