Mount Kinko rises 403 meters above sea level on the border of Okayama City and Tamano City. Located within the Setonaikai National Park, it is known as a scenic spot from which to view the beautiful islands of the Seto Inland Sea below. There is a TV tower at the top of the mountain, but there is also a rest house and an observatory from which you can see the Seto Inland Sea and Shikoku.
Okayama is a charming city with streets that retain the atmosphere of the Edo period, such as Okayama Castle and Korakuen Garden. In addition to the streetcars and retro gate towns, you can enjoy gourmet specialties such as parfaits made with local fruit and demi katsu-don, which are also great points of interest when walking around the city. In the surrounding area, there are many places to explore, such as Kibiji, a cycling tour of historical sites scattered throughout the satoyama landscape, and Uno Port, the gateway to art spots on the Seto Inland Sea.
