Okayama

What is Okayama?

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan’s Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.

Getting Around

A stop along the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen on the way from Tokyo to Hiroshima, there’s no excuse not to jump off at Okayama Station to break up your journey at 3.5 hours from Tokyo. Just 17 minutes down the road on the JR Sanyo Line, Kurashiki is just a small detour but a good stop on the way to the art islands between Honshu and Shikoku.
