Castle, Garden and Peach Boys
Okayama with a Local Guide
Okayama (岡山) holds the spirit of Japanese history and people. The city developed as a castle town during the Edo Period (1603-1867) and became a significant regional power.
Okayama is the site of Koraku-en, known as one of the top three traditional gardens in Japan, along with Kanazawa’s Kenrokuen and Mito’s Kairakuen and Okayama Castle, which is ranked among the best 100 Japanese castles.
One of the representative areas in Okayama is the Kurashiki Bikan Historical District – The Birthplace Of Momotaro – known as Peach Taro, a common Japanese masculine name, and often translated as Peach Boy.
Kurashiki (倉敷) has a preserved canal area that dates back to the Edo Period (1,603-1,867), when the city served as an important rice distribution center.
The Bikan area retains the picturesque landscape of the town from 300 years ago, and the area is designated an important traditional building preservation area.
