You can learn about the history and culture of Oki here, through displays and videos about Bull Sumo (cows), Oki Koten Sumo (men) and many unique festivals. The kitchen next door serves delicious soba noodle dishes and rock seaweed rice balls. This is a good place to stop for lunch on your drive around Dogo.

You can watch some good videos (in Japanese) about Oki Bull Sumo, traditional sumo and other local festivals of the Oki Islands here. The displays are interesting - if you have a guide who can show you around. The cafe (open in summer?) serves some good food - we enjoyed Oki soba noodles here.
