Okayama, japan, Asia Cruise

    Okayama is a major transit hub for western Japan. But with white peaches, a brooding black castle, and the famous garden of Kōrakuen, there are plenty of reasons to catch a later train and get out of the station to explore. Okayama is a busy metropolis of around 700,000 people. Among its attractions, only Kōrakuen is nationally known, and the rather dingy station area doesn't seem to promise much to visitors. But one key unlocks the unique charm of Okayama: Momotarō, the Peach Boy.
    The ancient castle town of Okayama, ruled by the Ikeda clan, is home to Korakuen Garden. Today, the main street in Okayama is known as Momotarō-Odōri in the Peach Boy's honor, and you'll find statues from the tale along the street. Although the attractions in the Culture Zone can easily fill a full day, try to set aside time for cycling the Kibi Plain — it's another fun way to explore the ancient history of this intriguing region.
