- The Degree of Secret Places:
"Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter" is a townscape preservation district and sightseeing district, which remains the townscape of most parts from Edo-era and Meiji-era to some parts from Showa-era, located in Kurashiki-shi, Okayama Prefecture.
The arcades called "Ebisu-dori"(Ebisu-street) and "Hon-dori"(Hon-street) through JR Kurashiki station and Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter, remain the exact townscape of Taisho and Showa-era, where you can see old Japan.
The theme of these areas is "to watch" and "to hang around" but Okayama Prefecture itself is famous for being the stage as one of the Japan's best-known folk tales, "Momotaro"(Peach Boy). Karakuri (trickery) dolls in "Momotaro Karakuri Hakubutsukan Museum" are so popular, fooling the eye.
There is also an experience-type attraction such as a super thrilling cave exploration, "Onigashima", where the ogres appeared in "Momotaro", jump out.
You can see the website in English too, so please check it out and visit there.
