Overview

Kurashiki was a center of trades in Edo Period. And some warehouses and many houses in those days are left here now . When you walk along the stream , you will feel that you travel into the town in Edo Period. You can ride a small boat rowed with paddles along the stream , and you can also ride the rickshaw. You can visit old merchant's house, Ohara Museum , and Kurashiki Folkcraft Museum.

What to Expect

This is a quiet tour. There are many places to visit and some things to experience and watch in Kurashiki Bikan historical area. You have enough time. You don't have to be busy. After I ask you what you want to do or watch here, I will make a special plan only for you. If you are interested in art, you can spend a lot of time in Ohara Museum. If you are interested in architecture, you can spend a lot of time in Ohashi House. If you like vehicles, you can ride a boat and a rickshaw. If you want to experience Japanese life, you can wear kimono or cook Japanese sweet 'murasuzume' or make your own 'tenugui' Japanese towel. If you like shopping, you can walk and watch many souvenir shops. There are many good restaurants in this area. You can enjoy Japanese dishes, Western dishes, Indian dishes, and so on.
