    Okayama Okayama-shi Kita-ku Omotecho 1-9-7
    "This restaurant is on Oranda-dori street in Okayama City. The brick entrance and simple interior give off an old-fashioned diner atmosphere. They offer a variety of simple, familiar dishes like Okayama's iconic ""Good Cheap Eats"" Demikatsu Don rice bowl with pork cutlet in demi-glace sauce, as well as Yakimeshi fried rice, rice omelets and more. The shop has been loved by locals through three generations, from its founding in 1948, and their most popular dish, Chuka Soba ramen hasn't changed since it premiered. The ramen's original Yamato broth, made with kombu kelp and katsuo shaving stock, is perfect with rice and many people order it with a Mini-Demikatsudon on the side."

    Went here for lunch, we had Chikane sovs(rammen) and yakimeshi(fries rice), both dishes were great, and at a Low lost. There are alot locals. GREAT and very friendly service.

    Okayama Kurashiki-shi Chuo 1-2-20
    A 10-minute walk from JR Kurashiki Station. This restaurant operates out of a building constructed during the early Meiji period located near the entrance to Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter. The interior features a relaxed retro-modern atmosphere and hanging in the dining area is the Playing Turtles calligraphy by world famous artist Shiko Munakata. For lunch we recommend their Kurashiki Riverboat Steak meal, limited to 15 servings it pairs beef steak with three different starters, and for dinner try their Domestic Beef Steak Course meal where you can choose your favorite cut of meat. They offer a special private dining room, Kawasemi (Kingfisher), which requires advance reservation.

    This restaurant is an absolute must if you are visiting Kurashiki! I visit every year, and they never cease to amaze me with their delectable foods and good service. The chefs, waiters, waitresses...

    Okayama Pref. Kurashikishi Chuou 1-5-13
    An acclaimed French restaurant, where fresh local vegetables and seafood from Seto Inland Sea are used to create French cuisine at a reasonable price. The stylish and refined interior is another cause of its popularity. It’s perfect for after-parties and end-of-year parties, but the counter seats make it easy for anyone to drop in on their own. Lunch offers the best value, and course A with its seven dishes is recommended. Approximately 15 minutes on foot from JR Kurashiki Station.

This shop focuses on Bangladeshi home-cooking, like its Bengal Curry. Their flagship dish is Dhal Curry, packed with lentils and vegetables and served with brilliant yellow saffron rice.

Okayama 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.
