Even on a sunny day the square itself was not very welcoming but the shps have an astonishing array of cotton goods. Heven on a stick if you are a fan of jeans.

The Ivy Square is within the old Bikan Historical Quarter, and walking about and around it has 2 main plus points : firstly, there's no entry fee; secondly, it's an amazing sight to behold seeing the vines wrapped onto the building structures....makes you turn green with envy. It's a picturesque setting, and great for stopping by and having a cups coffee.

The Ohara settled a great manufacture here, where the Shogun previously settled, which is now a perfect example of how to make an old place live in the present.
Past is closer.
There are shops, souvenirs, markets and a lot of good vibes for free (except if you buy stuff of course).
Lovely!

Wandered around Kurashiki's old quarter until we found this, the place where the tourist action began. Big brick warehouse, onlike many other we had seen in Japan. Must have been derelict before someone had the bright idea of smartening it up and using its uniqueness as a tourist attraction. Most of it is now a hotel, but the courtyard in front of it, equally brick-y, is now a venue for stores and attractions.

Pretty crowded when we were there, but enough to keep our interest for an hour or so. Browsing the curio stores, dropping in the music box museum and learning a little of the history of the place. Fun, like the rest of Kurashiki, but not exactly what we thought we would be seeing in Japan
