Okayama Black Castle is in Ujo Park on the west bank of the river, while Korakuen Garden is on the opposite bank.

The Korakuen is one of the three most famous gardens in Japan. Installed on 14 hectares, its creation was completed in 1700. There are teahouses, large lakes, peaceful hills, maple forests, a few alleys and waterfalls and even a lotus pond. Its name means "garden of subsequent rejoicing", a reference to a quote from Confucius.

The castle, as for him, nicknamed "castle of the raven", is famous for its rare black color. It is an excellent 1966 replica of the original version, the original plans being copied for reconstruction.
