Okayama Prefecture

Okayama is an important transportation hub, being the location where the Sanyo Shinkansen (Bullet Train) meets with the only rail connection to Shikoku. Okayama’s most famous attraction is Korakuen Garden, which is ranked as one of the three best landscape gardens in Japan. Okayama Castle is located just across from the garden. Okayama serves as the locale for the popular fairy tale of Momotaro (the Peach Boy), so visitors will notice many references to the legendary hero.
