  • Use spare time in Okayama City Branch exhibition ", Jiro Harada-should encourage more and more Western" watch. Adults: 1,000 yen (JAF % no). Saturday morning was available and able to appreciate slowly and quietly, very helpful. I thought it was ogai Mori and had a friendship with early orgasm painting works are few, although painting student at the time and going abroad to Europe (Munich), learn what you told him what to clear the display. Able to convince and indeed was what I enjoyed most of all, the theme of the exhibition was clear, so easy to understand. In my dark, watch more than one hour. It is recommended as good access from Jr Okayama station, Okayama Castle. Hotel restaurant/bar was attached.

  • Just wanted to see a special exhibit on the bullet train from Tokyo, was to go see. Many people come to look at the Organization, it was quite popular. In ladies of the Kansai dialect, there may even be sure what. The restrictions make any groups or mildly curator, to announce to the Hama. Not that I'm sure will. Place in a streetcar less 3, 100 yen /-in distance. It is absolutely recommended spots.
