The beautiful white-walled city scape radiates historical romance and art.

The Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter preserves the beauty of traditional Japanese architecture for the present day, with its rows of willow trees gently swaying in the wind, and the beautiful contrast between the white walls and the black-and-white namako walls casting their shadows onto the Kurashiki River below. Fashionable shops stocking Kurashiki brands, such as "Kurashiki Hanpu" (Kurashiki-produced canvas), and cafes made from remodeled townhouses are lined up together. Many cultural facilities have gathered here, including the "Ohara Museum of Art," which has a collection of world-famous paintings.
