Day 4 – Okayama + Kurashiki

Day 4 was again spent being driven by our friend and guide Yukari to small towns that were just awesome.

Our first stop was in this castle that was turned into an interesting museum.

I couldn’t resist taking a picture. In Vietnam where I live, you rarely see kids by themselves. Major difference in country security.
