Kurashiki Ivy Square, Kurashiki

(3.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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 Kurashiki bikan area Ivy Square, Kurashiki cotton spinning factories have been transformed into the shogunate's magistrate mark and became the current tourist is a thing. Summer is winter leaves are Ivy overhang on the red-brick, red brick look. It is also different views.

  • And sign, man while walking in the shortcut to the area because it is deep in the Pocket. But a little break in the middle of the walk, there are many benches in the courtyard come out well in the photo, the location was great.

  • Located at the end of the great Plaza and hotel and aesthetic. The red brick building is the Ivy walls, sometimes you've got a fantastic atmosphere.

  • Place reminds me of a hospital, old and poorly maintained. The outside is promising, but interior is what you stay at. They do have Onsen and location in the center is good.
  • Surprise place to discover. Amazing atmosphere surrounds with historical European style buildings. Beautiful place to stay.
  • Vintage feel with 1950s decor and onsen style bathing. Pretty relaxed feel and great buffet bkfst.
  • Great Meiji era feel to this place and many interesting shops.
  • 美観地区に隣接していて便利です。 部屋はクラシカルでした。
