Early in the morning when the air is very fresh, you can go for a morning walk to enjoy the beautiful spots using the hours before departing.

Visit Okayama Shrine, walk along the path outside the Korakuen Garden and have a little break at riverside terrace.

Okayama shrine is located by the bank of Asahigawa river, from which Okayama Castle can be seen ahead on the other side.

It is within a 10-min. walk from Koraku Hotel.

Stone walls under the castle will lead you to the top of the hill. 

Stairs are a bit rough, they might give you a good exercise but watch your steps!
