Okayama is a discreet rural capital, blessed with sunshine and proud of its fruit crops and its heroes: the legendary Momotaro, a boy who challenged a cannibal demon, and the painter Takehisa Yumeji (1884-1934), to whom the city has dedicated a museum. Okayama is also worth visiting for the Hayashibara Museum of Japanese Art, and especially for its garden, one of the finest in Japan. Call in here for an interlude of serenity before escaping towards the Inland Sea and the placid green countryside of the province of Chugoku.
