"If you're the type to take it slow and appreciate a place, this area is perfect for it. It's a small place which makes it easy to explore, leaving you enough time to sit down and sketch a bit, or just enjoy the scenery."
"Approximately 20 minutes train ride from Okayama station and a 10-15 minute walk from Kurashiki station, Bikan is wonderful. Set around a canal, you can step back in time and visit museums, art galleries, shops and restaurants, a mixture of old and new Japan.
Maps are available in English and findi..."ng your way around is very easy as everything is set around the canal. it is a popular spot for wedding so look out for exquisite brides and grooms promenading across the bridges [they are happy for you to take photographs if you ask permission and don't get in the way of their professional photographers].
Eating is inexpensive and you can try a range of local foods.
