Kurashiki and the Kibi Plain Bicycle Road

Kurashiki is a city 15 minutes by train from Okayama, and its biggest attraction is the Bikan area, which is a kind of a "old town". To be honest, this was not a highlight on my trip, and left Kurashiki after lunch. But things got better. I took the local train for two stations to Soja where I rented a bike for 1000 and then rode along the Kibi plain bicycle road which took me along the countryside past temples, burial mounds and acres. I then returned the bicycle on another train station and from there go back to Okayama. The distance is some 15 km, although my trip was a little longer as I lost my ways a few times.
