Okayama's popular tourist destination 'Bikan Chiku (Historical Quarter)'. It was flourished as a merchant town and now it leaves buildings with beautiful white walls and willow trees along the river, which are the taste of Edo Period. You can enjoy boating and rickshaw like traveling to the old times of Japan. And also the delicious food around here.◎Access: about 10min from Kurashiki Station. There're lot of parking lots around the area. The boating is so popular that you should buy tickets as soon as you arrive.


The area called 'White Wall Town' is many beautiful japanese tradistional buildings with white wall. You can enjoy the boating activity on Kurashiki river with spectacle time-slipped.


People attach a great deal of importance to indirect lightings and offer elegant time to guests.
