I decided to make a quick day trip to Okayama around 88 kms away from Himeji by the shinkansen – a trip of 25 minutes.
I jumped on a tram towards Okayama Castle and made the short walk in the rain for a quick explore around the area.
I didn’t go into the castle, rather scouted around hoping for a break in the weather. As I was jumping from cover to cover I pulled out my phone and had a look for somewhere to eat.
There wasn’t much closeby but there was one cafe over a bridge just outside the gate of Okayama Korakuen.
