Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter

 The "Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter" in Kurashiki city once prospered as the political and commercial center. Streets from the Edo period with a mixture of Japanese and western styles have been preserved to date.
We recommend activities such as sailing down the Kurashiki River, roaming around wearing a kimono, and visiting "Ohara Museum of Art" and appreciating the handicrafts. Kurashiki is also the birthplace of Japan's denim, which is why many visitors come here seeking high-quality denim.
