Sightseeing spot

The traditional streets of the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter feature white walled warehouses, grid pattern walls, Namako-kabe, and rows of weeping trees, creating a beautiful and charming townscape. This harmonious and historic scenery is very popular with tourists.

This interesting area is home to the first private Western art museum in Japan, the Ohara Museum of Art. And you won’t want to miss the nearby beautiful tourism complex, Kurashiki Ivy Square, a reproduction of factory facilities from the Meiji period.

Also, you can browse through an array of fashionable shops that offer Kurashiki Canvas and Kurashiki Denim, the city’s new brand. For a rest, there are several lovely cafes renovated from traditional townhouses.
For the adventurous, you can explore the town from a small traditional boat or rickshaw!

    江戶時代日本第一水街稱號,一街一景都留存著樸實風味。

    來到岡山一定要造訪的景點,倉敷美觀地區,有早期的老街道、商店舖、倉庫、優美的運河等⋯⋯讓人放鬆心情的好地方。

    倉敷美觀地區詩情話意般的美景,小橋流水、樹枝迎風搖曳,很像大陸江南水鄉蘇州的印象,但是也面臨了過度熱門太商業化,失去了原有樸實的風味。
