I visited Okayama city after Shizutani school.
Okayama city close by train, about 30 minute. (Ticket 530yen)
I visited Korakuen (Japanese garden).
Korakuen was created by the same architect as Shizutani school, Tsuda Nagatada.
It is one of major gardens in Japan.
Total area 133,000m2.
Water flow and lawn are impressive.
JR Okayama Station
Tram station in front of the station “Okayama-Eki-Mae:岡山駅前”
I used tram Okayama station to near the station “Shiroshita”: 城下 by Korakuen. (For Higashiyama：東山)
3 stations Okayama-Eki-Mae to Shiroshita (Ticket 100 yen)
Shiroshita to Korakuen about 10 minute by foot.
I dropped in at the Okayama Shinto shrine.
Admission ticket 400 yen (Korakuen + Okayama castle 560 yen)
Leave the garden, I rested at a café of near the exit.
I drank a grape soda.
In the menu picture, there were some grapes and ice-cream.
Actually it was only ice cream. (Tricked!!)
It is not original.
When I visited, I could see a Tsukimi-yagura.
This tower built in the Edo period.
Not ordinarily open to the public.
When I returned, I walked to Okayama Station. (About 30 minute)
See you next our trip!!
