A very nice castle from the outside, but not as impressive on the inside. Spend your time on the outside of the castle and the garden on the island first. If you have enough time or are really interested, visit the castle on the inside...More

Okayama Castle originally made in 1597, was destroyed in the last year of WWII and was rebuilt in 1966. Thus, the original castle like Himeji Castle is a better castle. But Okayama Castle is located on the Asahi River, which was used as a moat and the more famous Korakuen Garden is located just across the river. It's easy to go to Kairakuen Garden and Okayama Castle by a bus or a tram from JR Okayama Station. You should also go to Kurashiki, and consider going to Naoshima Island.
