Bikan Histrical Quarter
Marchant homes and storehouses dating back to the Edo(1603-1867) and Meiji(1868-1912)Periods,have been restored in this area around the canal,which is
designated as an Important Preservation District for Histric Buildings.
Many of its buildings are now leading new lives as museums and galleries such as the Ohara Museum of Art, the Kurashiki Museum of Folkcrafts,and the
Kurashiki Archaeological Museum. Against the green backdrop of Tsurugatayama Hill, the willow-lined camnal and exquisite buildings combine to create a unique
and beautiful histrical area.


Cultural Zone
The Kurashiki Chuo Avenue runs south perpendicular to the station.
On the left or east side is the Bikan Histrical Quarter, and on the right or west side is the "cultural zone" composed of the City Art Museum,Museum of Natural
History,and the Central Library.


Kurashiki Geibunkan Hall
Located just south of the Bikan Histrical Quarter, with the Kurashiki River flowing adjacent to its eastern border, the Kurashiki Geibunkan Hall has the same
archetectural design as the city's traditional storehousees. A multi-porpose facility, its has two theaters, the largest with an 885 seat capacity. Annexed to it, is
the Oyama Memorial Museum, established in honour of Kurashiki-born Japanese chess champion Mr.Yasuharu Oyama.


Kurashiki Civic Hall
This Large white building lies immediately east of Ivy Square, and southeast of Tsurugatayama Hill. It takes its shape from the name of this hill which means
"drane shaped",. With a 1990 seat capacity, its acoustically superb hall is a favourite for classical concerts.
