April 4, 2015 - Handayama Botanical Garden and side trip to Kurashiki

After leaving Korakuen Garden, I had a brief visit at Okayama Castle.

View on cherry trees, stretched among hills

Short ride with JR Tsuyama train and 15 min walk from Hokaiin Station
I have arrived at Handayama Botanical Garden.

Gardens are located along a steep hillside and offers nice views over the city.

In afternoon I have decided to take side trip to Kurashiki

Kurashiki is known for a preserved canal area from times,
when the city served as an important rice distribution center.

Achi Shrine is located on small hill near canal area.
