I visited Kurashiki as promissed to my friend she is a Kurashiki Sightseeing ambassador; Ms Umekichi Hiyama.
I saw her last month at Ikebukuro entertainment hall where she performed.

Kurashiki is in Okayama prefecture. I took the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Okayama, then changed to a local line.

Kurashiki Station

There is a beautiful place just 15 minites walk from the station.

It’s known for the centuries-old buildings and shops of the picturesque historical area.

I entered the shop; KURASHIKINU.

I love the products.

This is a calligraphy sign for a  Japanese sweet shop.

I recommend a visit to Kurashiki.
