  • A very cool sight that was not crowded at all and very authentic. The gift shop there was very unique offering wares that you can't normally find in this kind of place. It was a super find even though we stumbled across it by accident.
  • very beautiful old merchant house, very well preserved. Feels just like you're going back in time
  • It's a really lovely old traditional Japanese residence with very friendly staff who answer all questions and tell awesome stories about the place.
  • Lovely place
  • What I told the former residence of the richest man in the country. There were differences in detail and compared to the most sophisticated is than just tend to go to Kyoto, because Kyoto. Still, it is great. I was young at that time, around the car in Tokyo seemed absorbed in the prodigal, come in the age when he is with his feet and stared at. In us us again of the importance of home education.

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.
