There are some good museums there that are worth seeing (part of the Ohara museum, Kurabo Memorial Hall) and there's some shops to potter around. There was a nice free photo exhibition in a large hall next to the hotel. Some renovation work was happening...More

Rd brick buildings were constructed as part of a mill in Ivy Square in 1889, but we did not find this so interesting as there was a hotel, restaurant and some museums which we did not enter.

Ivy Square is atractive from the outside simply because of the ivy. Inside is just a collection of touristy gift shops. You'll be pasing by anyway if you're strolling the Bizan District, but don't make a special trip.

Nothing special in here. I stayed in the hotel. Outside space is seldom used except for a ridiculously expensive beer garden event.

Near to Kurashiki bikan. Nice atmosphere. Great place to sit down and relax. There are some shops in the complex also.

Even on a sunny day the square itself was not very welcoming but the shps have an astonishing array of cotton goods. Heven on a stick if you are a fan of jeans.

The Ohara settled a great manufacture here, where the Shogun previously settled, which is now a perfect example of how to make an old place live in the present. Past is closer. There are shops, souvenirs, markets and a lot of good vibes for free...More

Wandered around Kurashiki's old quarter until we found this, the place where the tourist action began. Big brick warehouse, onlike many other we had seen in Japan. Must have been derelict before someone had the bright idea of smartening it up and using its uniqueness...More
