    Okayama Pref. Kurashikishi Tamashima 3-8-25

    とても静かで落ち着いた場所です。 釘隠しが、兎の形をしていて岐阜の高山陣屋のものととてもにていました。備中松山藩主の小堀遠州になにかゆかりがあるのでしょうか。

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.
