Our hotel was next to the canal so we could watch it from our room. It’s not just a canal but nicely maintained and they made a very nice path along it where you can easily spend some time walking, sitting and watch the people...More

While walking around the train station area, I picked up some rice ball snacks and a drink and ate it along this park. It was late lunch hour and other people were eating their snacks as well. Nicely laid out landscaped stream. Great place for...More

About 10 minutes walk from where we were staying at Hotel Granvia at Okayama. The soothing greenery, the flora fauna, the wooden walkways make for a relaxing walk provided the sun plays hide & seek. Dotted with benches & culverts, small bridges over clear waters...More

The Canal was a nice walk during the day. The trees give much needed shade during the hot day. The view is beautiful. I was lucky enough to be pulled into a Tai Chi session. HOWEVER.... Do NOT go through the canal after dark. I...More

I am not sure about the park, I suppose the whole area is considered a park? However, Walking along the canal "river" is nice. Best place to start is from Momotorodori, 5 mins from Okayama station. There are some bronze and stone statues along the...More
