Okayama Korakuen garden and Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter
Okayama Korakuen garden is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan.
created from 1687 to 1700.
Since the garden keeps its original appearance from the Edo Period up to the present day, you can enjoy traditional Daimyo(feudal load) Garden all year round.
Kurashiki also retains its traditional appearance in Edo Period.
Especially in Bikan Historical Quarter, you can enjoy the atmosphere of the merchant city in 17th-18 century as well as industrial legacies in Meiji era.
