    "This restaurant is located approximately an eight-minute drive from JR Okayama Station. Situated on the outer garden of ""Okayama Korakuen,"" one of Japan's three great gardens, you can enjoy Japanese and regional cuisine using plenty of local ingredients from Okayama. They also handle banquets, wedding parties and Buddhist memorial services. Their ""bara sushi"", a specialty of Okayama scattered with rich amounts of seafood and mountain delicacies, is especially recommended. In addition, their ""Hanayaka Gozen"" is a set that includes tempura, a simmered dish and dessert, and is popular with female patrons."

    後楽園の正門近くにあります。岡山に来れば、やはり「祭り寿司」ですよね。メニューから「祭り寿司御膳」を選びました。昔藩主から節約令が出されたときに、特別な日に魚や野菜を目立たないようにすし飯に混ぜて、「ばらずし」のようにして食べたのに始まるようです。「ままかり」が入っているので、祭り寿司をいただいた実感がしました。美味しいですね。

Okayama Main Areas

around-area-map

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.
