Ario Kurashiki Outlet Park: Shopping Mall
Just outside the North Exit of Kurashiki Station, this is where Tivoli Park, the Danish Amusement Park once stood. After it shut down, the rides and buildings were taken down and the outlet mall was built. All that remains of Tivoli Park is the fountain and Clock Tower outside the station. It still operates and at each hour it opens up, plays music and characters move and rotate.
The mall itself contains a lot of clothing shops and most are quite fashionable for those looking to do some real shopping. There is also a Shonen Jump shop for those who want to buy anime/manga-related souvenirs, Tower Records, cooking shops, 100 yen shop, and novelty shops, including many that sell local goods such as local famous wines, jeans, and fabrics. Some of the clothing shops are also locally made and designed.
In addition to shopping there is also an overwhelming number of restaurants and foodstalls. Some are chain restaurants, such as the Coldstone Creamery and McDonalds but there are also many other types of restaurants. The foodstalls sell a wide range of foods as well, like fried chicken, croquettes, desserts, and pastries.
It's a nice place to go for shopping and just being out, especially in the evening after the attractions have closed.
