1950(昭和25)年の開館。江戸時代の土蔵作り米倉を改装しており、この建物そのものが 美観地区を代表する光景の一つになっている。展示品はいにしえに吉備地方だった一帯から出土した遺物が中心で、屋根に鴟尾(しび)がついた家形陶棺など独自のものが多い。

          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.
