Where to stay in Kurashiki
- While Kurashiki offers many different types of accommodation, we think that the traditional atmosphere of this city deserves to be reflected in your choice of stay. Here are two different options for different wallets that both come highly recommended. Ryokan Kurashiki If you want to splurge while staying in Kurashiki, this upscale Ryokan, located in the middle of the Bikan Historical Quarter is your best bet. Once a storehouse or “kura”, the building has been tastefully renovated in a style that maintains the beauty of the original structure, yet makes it a very comfortable place to stay. Ryokan Kurashiki Ryokan Kurashiki offers five different guest rooms, all with a slightly different style and character. The largest one can accommodate up to six guests, with some of the rooms offering traditional futon, while others offering regular king size beds. Ryokan Kurashiki All rooms also have private ensuite bathrooms, some with bathtubs made of wood, from which you can enjoy the view of the ryokan’s tasteful garden. There’s a small restaurant and café inside the ryokan, which is open also for non-staying guests. Prices start at 33,000 yen per person a night. Yuurin-an If the prices at Ryokan Kurashiki are outside of your range, the guesthouse Yuurin-an might be a better option. This guesthouse is also located in the middle of the Bikan Historical Quarter, in a traditional Japanese wooden house, dating back roughly more than 100 years. Yuurin-an They have four rooms ranging in size from six to eight tatami mats. All are traditional Japanese tatami rooms, and the guests are expected to take care of folding and unfolding of their futon by themselves. Solo travelers are expected to share the room with other guests, but the rooms can also be rented privately if more than two people are travelling together. The biggest room can at most accommodate six people. Yuurin-an The bathroom and toilets are shared among the guests. On the bottom floor, there’s also a café and lounge space where guests can mingle with each other as well as with the friendly staff, mostly consisting of younger Japanese people. During the day, the café is open to the public. Yuurin-an ©NAVITIME JAPAN. Travel Info Check out our travel tips to make your trip better!

Okayama Main Areas
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.
