Major transportation hub with art museum and peaceful garden

Okayama is the gateway to Shikoku island via the Seto Ohashi Bridge. It has a highly convenient location at an intersection of major rail and road networks, and air travellers are served by Okayama Airport. Major convention facilities such as the Okayama Convention Center and the Okayama International Center are concentrated inside the city, allowing events to be organized very efficiently. The city is also home to Korakuen Garden, famed as one of the three finest Japanese gardens. Other after-convention attractions include the island-studded Seto Inland Sea, the white walls of the town and the famous Ohara Museum of Art in Kurashiki.
