Okay!!!!!! There are vines!!! It's a nice courtyard. It's made of bricks. There are souvenir stores and cafes surrounding the courtyard.

Don't go out of your way to visit.

Nice place to rest.

It has a pretty garden and courtyard which is great for photos. Otherwise, it is just a historical building in the corner of the old town.

A hidden, quiet and beautiful place. Too bad we were not able to eat there. I find the area quite romantic. There’s a koi pond.

I found the Ivy Square area to be pretty nice. I was here in the winter so I couldn't imagine how beautiful it will be come spring and summer time frame. There is a hotel here that is probably a nice stay. Otherwise there are a few shops, events, and nice places to walk. I just enjoyed walking around here looking at the building and surrounding nature. Not a whole lot else to see but it's worth a quick look.

We had just exited the Southern portion of Kurashiki's beautifully preserved canal area when we saw a sign for this complex. After we passed through the gate, information signs in English offered myriad details about the location, which features many brick buildings covered in ivy. They went up in 1889 as part of Japan's first modern cotton mill. Now, they house entities such as shops, galleries, a hotel and museums. One, which is part of the Ohara Museum, features Kojima Torajiro, who painted in the Western style.

Articles for sale in the shops included souvenirs and clothing, but we saw nothing that appealed. None of the museums beckoned. We liked the landscaping and found the complex pleasant to stroll through but would not seek it out again. We much preferred our time by the canal.

Don’t really know why this is listed a tourist activity. It is just a landscaped Square with tables and chairs for visitors surrounded by tourist food outlets and a hotel . Pretty little waterway with carp and water lilly plants said to be sourced from the French garden attached to a Monet museum. Not sure it deserves a special visit.

We didn’t spend much time here. After all the loveliest part is the canal area. We were too tired to enter a museum having walked the whole day.

I’m unsure why this is listed as a destination in Kurashiki. I’d say Don’t bother unless you happen to be passing by or in the mood for shopping, or eating there. Admittedly we only had a quick look.

It is near the Bikan historical area and easy to get here from there in a short walk. Having seen the photographs, I knew what to expect. However, when I was there, because it was late autumn, the ivy leaves were all gone, leaving bare branches. The buildings were pretty architecture, but would have been better if all the ivy were fully green,
