Kurashiki! JR runs busses as well!


Apparently they used to have some sort of Viking-themed park there; a franchise of Tivoli in Copenhagen.


Kurashiki old town






This type of tile cladding is Kurashiki's hallmark.


A Bank announcing financial news on a greenboard outside the office. This was in November, at the height of the Eurozone debt crisis. It says something about EFSF and EU, probably not too positive.


View from Washuzan highland park!


A big park in Okayama. I think it was something like among the top 3 biggest parks of this sort in Japan(?).






A couple taking wedding shots.




They had a pedestrian street in Okayama called Amsterdam.

That's about it. Hope you enjoyed.

Nice pictures.

BTW

The 4 buildings u/c on the left are like this now, almost completed:



They will also build a huge park next to it on the freight yard.

The building U/C on the right is topped out as well and it's actually part of a "twin tower" development. Also do you know about this? Osaka is building Japan's first supertall: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1082757

Next time you go to Osaka there will be more to see

Thanks!

I remember those buildings, they were next to Yodobashi camera!


Behind to the left

Nice to hear the freight yard is being developed in to a park. Seemed like a huge waste of potential to have train tracks occupy so much of central Osaka. Although from my perspective, all of Osaka seemed pretty much like central Osaka, it's so dense and vast.

It seems I took a picture of the supertall construction without knowing it was to be Japan's first supertall! Looked high already in November.
