Kurashiki (倉敷市 Kurashiki-shi) is a historic city located in western Okayama Prefecture, Japan, sitting on the Takahashi River, on the coast of the Inland Sea.
Kurashiki-Den is located right in front of the old merchant quarter called the Bikan historical district. There are still 17th century wooden warehouses (kura, 倉)
painted white with traditional black tiles along a canal framed with weeping willows and filled with koi.
The area has no electric poles in order to make it more closely resemble the look of the Meiji period.
