    岡山旅行の際、母がマスキングテープを欲しがっていた為、調べてお店にお邪魔しました。 入店した時間が閉店時間の30分前だった為、私たちが悪かったのかもしれませんが、入店してもいらっしゃいませの一言もなく、しまいには店員の方3名ほどお見受けしましたが、全員が無言で閉店後にもできるような補充作業を黙々とされており、まるでほっておいても買っていくんでしょと言わんばかりの空気感でした。 場所も少しメイン通り...

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.
