We didn’t spend much time here. After all the loveliest part is the canal area. We were too tired to enter a museum having walked the whole day.

I’m unsure why this is listed as a destination in Kurashiki. I’d say Don’t bother unless you happen to be passing by or in the mood for shopping, or eating there. Admittedly we only had a quick look.

Near to Kurashiki bikan. Nice atmosphere. Great place to sit down and relax. There are some shops in the complex also.

Even on a sunny day the square itself was not very welcoming but the shps have an astonishing array of cotton goods. Heven on a stick if you are a fan of jeans.
