Review of Former Nozakike House

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/05/12 Traditional home on steroids
This is amazing - not just the scale but natural beauty of buildings / gardens. The owner had a vision and created an ancestral home- Downton Abbey Japan - style; even can see how the servants worked...
Reviewed:2015/12/13 Great experience to see how the 1% used to live
This is an amazing house and beautifully maintained. Its very large and gives you a great idea how the top samurai used to live 200 years ago. Pity the rooms are not open to enter, only look from...
Reviewed:2013/11/25 Fascinating!
Theres quite a lot to see on this property; it belonged to rich people, and you can see and learn so much about daily life in those times. :-)

          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.
