Visiter Kurashiki, la Venise nippone

Métropole marchande entièrement préservée des bombardements, la jolie Kurashiki a vu ses entrepôts reconvertis en musées et restaurants. Aujourd'hui, son beau quartier historique, ses canaux et ses nombreux musées en font une ville attrayante, facile à visiter depuis Okayama.

KURASHIKI, THE CITY OF MUSEUMS

The city has many museums installed in the beautiful buildings of the Bikan district. The Ohara Museum, which you will quickly recognize with its architecture in the style of a Greek temple, is a must, being the oldest museum of European art in Japan.

Its collections includes works by the great European masters (Rodin, Monet, Gauguin, Picasso, Matisse ...) but also has an Asian art gallery, as well as an annex for modern and contemporary Japanese works.
