Confectionery Kuraya (旬菓匠くらや)
A 10-minute drive from JR Tsuyama Station. Founded in the first year of the Meiji period (1868) this long-standing Japanese confectioner continues to make sweets using their guarded family recipes. Their well-known Ekubo (Dimple) Sweet Ichima sandwiches coarse red bean paste made from domestic adzuki beans in bouche-style castella pastry and was the recipient of the National Japanese Wagashi Confectionery Competition's Governor's Award. Their Waffle treat, filled with custard cream made with a healthy amount of fresh eggs and milk, is also popular for its nostalgic flavor and sweetness. All of their treats are made with very little in the way of additives or preservatives. Attached to the confectioners is the Kuraya Teahouse.

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.
