Your accommodation at the Hotel Granvia Okayama is one minute walk, directly connected to the station.

After check-in, commence exploring the city of Okayama. Okayama is home to the magnificent landscape garden of Korakuen - another of Japan's three most beautiful gardens. The garden, covering about 14 ha., was completed in 1700. It contains rustic tea arbours, extensive lawns, lovely ponds, graceful groves, and peaceful hills, lanes and streams. All are tastefully arranged to harmonize with the surrounding hill and mountain. The maple trees, cherry and Japanese apricot groves offer beautiful seasonal contrasts.

Okayama Castle is a 3 minute walk from the south exit of Korakuen Garden, and was originally constructed in the 16th century. The four-storied donjon was rebuilt in 1966, which displays many relics of local history. Okayama Castle is sometimes referred to as the Crow Castle due to its black exterior.

You might also want to visit the Hayashibara Museum of Art, a 5 minute walk from Okayama Castle, exhibits over 10,000 works of swords, armour, fine arts and calligraphy. The museum was established in 1964.

Stay: Hotel Granvia Okayama - 1/2
