Okayama

Historical Quarter or Kikaikinzoku Industrial Park. Toursits visit to enjoy the historical and nostalgic quarter everyday in Kurashiki city.

Okayama has a lot of charm and you can enjoy seafood in the South and vegetables grown in a rich natural environment, as well as the Nishiwakura Hot Spring and Yunogosagi Hot Spring in the northern-central area that don't lose to other cities. When talking about celebrities from Okayama, the first name on the list is Momotaro, and so the prefecture's special product has to be millet dumplings. Other than that muscat grapes are also a prefectural speciality.

With the Okayama Station playing a central role for local transportation (it is serviced by both the Shinkansen line and the JR Sanyo line), you can reach Okayama in about 1 hour by Shinkansen from the Kansai region or Hiroshima.

Okayama is a very attractive city that is blessed with culture, nature and a warm climate.
