    Where to stay in Kurashiki

    Look to the canal district of Kurashiki for the most characterful accommodations in the old merchant town. Along the willow-lined banks of the main canal, you'll find a selection of hotels and traditional-style guesthouses known as ryokan, some converted from old warehouse buildings. Newly built establishments try their best to get close to the action of this scenic and historic district, so take a look on either side of the canal for a collection of fairly standard hotels and a few hostels.
