Former Ohara Residence大原家住宅

Other Historic Site/Building

In Kurashiki’s late Edo period, water transport on the Kurashiki River was used to enhance economic growth, and a new power known as “shinroku” emerged. The Ohara family played a leading role in the movement. The construction of their house’s main building began in 1795, and the parlor was added later. The building retains many signs of the past and in 1971 it was designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan.

          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.
