In Takahashi, we went to Bittyu Matsuyama Castle. The castle is one of the remaining original castles in Japan. The trip to the castle was like a mountain climbing. I was exhausted.
After visiting the castle, we drove to Kurashiki. The city center was crowded with cars and tourists. We had a hard time to find a parking lot. One hour was needed to park our car.
We had a lunch there and strolled around the town. We also had afternoon coffee break with cake at a nice cafe. We really enjoyed the short trip today.
