Kurashiki is a mixture – modern and traditional.

It has a shopping mall, outlet mall, art museums, a shinkansen stop and a regular train station.

And in spring it’s lined with cherry blossoms.

There are also a lot of traditional buildings.

Nestled in rural Okayama prefecture, it’s a taste of old and new Japan fused together.
