Okayama, Okayama Prefecture
Beautiful Castle in OkayamaOkayama is so green...they have really nice botanical gardens. I went to Okayamajo, also known as "crow castle." If you have a chance, go to Okayama just for the gardens and all the delicious fruit! They have some of the most delicious peaches I have ever had in my life, but fruit in Japan is definitely not cheap either. I also went to the Middle Eastern/Oriental Museum of art, and that was also very nice.
