Okayama Tour: Castle Black

Okayama Castle has been nicknamed as Ujo ( Crow Castle) because of its black exterior.

Castle Description

The castle is about 15 -20 minutes walk from JR Okayama Station. There are buses and trams going to the castle but R and I decided to do some more exercise and save some yen for presents 🙂

R and I decided not to enter the castle anymore , we were both satisfied with what we have seen already. 🙂


Any thoughts?
