Important

On a national holiday I can guide you.

After visiting Washuzan we will return to Kurashiki together.
From Kurashiki Area to Kojima we use a bus. But from Kojima to Washuzan we use a taxi. It costs 2000yen from Kojima to Washuzan by taxi. In winter cruising in Seto Inland Sea is cold. When you don't want to join the crusing, you can visit Jeans Street in Kojima instead. Kojima is the town which made jeans for the first time in Japan. There are many jeans shops and jeans factories.
