Built in 1889 as the country's first cotton mill, Kurashiki Ivy Square has since transformed into a complex of museums, shops, and restaurants. Learn about the history of Kurashiki Bosekijo, the company that established the profitable mill building, and stop in the museum housing works by Western-style artist Kojima Torajiro, as well as some of the Egyptian and Islamic works from his own collection. Peruse artisan shops selling ceramics and other handicrafts, or take a rickshaw ride through the square. Museum-goers should be prepared for minimal English explanation regarding the exhibits.

  • The original factory was converted to a complex business place, and a gift shop around the square, if the beauty of the area walk tired can choose this rest. If time is not enough to ignore

  • Think not to be involved unless it does have stuffed away reception, restaurant and hotel guests often sees. Neither, not embarrassed or not bothered if the elderly persons, whether or not it feels to have checked. I saw going to pick up small debris falling into the Foyer at the front. There are many great human resources. However, the room was on the second floor escalators or elevators, bodily carry, but have come up the stairs. And that it is hesitant to write a little... 4:00, room knocked on the door several times and that not everyone and try to get the times instead it unpolished women had been stayed the next morning continued, I wondered where asked I couldn't sleep, and you heard a suspicious noise in the room but the building stayed the same phenomenon was,. When this story was so other women also said. Not that strong inspiration not to request rooms during their stay without that comes to mind is not so do not believe too much like that (lol) and I.

  • Helpful staff area. I feel a bit of antiquity is a retro feel. CNN staff were helpful. Bath room with no bathroom, so took advantage twice a day and night. It was a light Rock Springs. Breakfast is a buffet, were pleased with both the amount and taste. Parking lot took 500 yen in a nearby facility. You can use the parking lot in front of the door is convenient, but were not. The Wi-Fi was 30 up 25.

  • I stayed here, room I got had two beds, room has a bathroom with shower but they also have a bath room for everyone if you want to use it instead (you can't use it if you have tattoos). Get location, was right next to everything and want to visit. Hotel has a dinner/ breakfast place. There is a bar, it. Was alittle hard to find but was nice.
  • Cool place to stroll around relax eat shop and enjoy an oldish Japanese setting.
  • Nice place, centre of the ivy square district with attached restaurant and Souvenir Shop. Some (?) Rooms with toilet but without shower. Instead a hotel only public bath/Onsen style bath is provided.
  • Walk just short distance from Momotaro museam. There are some shops and activities. When we visited they had an event to show Kurashiki higt school students's art.
  • The Ivy Square beer garden is great. The food was much better than other beer gardens and the atmosphere is great. I would recommend checking out Ivy Square even if there isn't am event.
