Okayama

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Chugoku  /  Okayama Prefecture  /  Okayama
A major transit hub in western Japan, Okayama provides a convenient mid-point between Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima. The city is famous for its tasty fruits, which you can find in many open-air and closed markets, as well as its iconic landscape garden, which features expansive lawns and ponds overlooked by a brooding black castle. Other tourist attractions in Okayama include three museums and the first public school in Japan, alongside an assortment of teahouses and other Edo-period buildings. Images of Peach Boy, a legendary demon-quelling boy hero, appear all over the city, adding to its charm.
