    If you are travelling to Kurashiki via Shinkansen, you will stop at Shin-Kurashiki. Although there are some worthwhile sights in Shin-Kurashiki (the area is known as Tamashima), most of the attractions that tourists come to see are accessible through Kurashiki Station. The transfer from Shin-Kurashiki Station to Kurashiki Station only costs 190 yen (prices are subject to change).

    From Shin-Kurashiki Station, you can visit:
    -Saisou-Tei (Yunoki House)
    -Entsuji Temple
    -Yatakayama Mountain
    -Honjoin Temple
    -Tamashima Lighthouse
    -Sami Beach (the oldest beach in Japan)
    -Tamashima Cultural Center
    -Toshima Shrine
    -Haguro Shrine
    -Enjoin Temple

    From Kurashiki Station, you can visit:
    -Bikan Historic District
    -Achi Shrine
    -Ohashi House
    -Ohara Museum of Art
    -Kurashiki Ivy Square
    -Museum of Folkcrafts
    -Rural Toy Museum
    -Momotaro Museum
    -Archaeological Museum
    -Seiganji Temple
    -Torajiro Kojima Memorial Museum
    -Oyama Memorial Museum
    -Museum of Natural History
    -Insect Museum
    -City Art Museum
    -Character Banks Museum

    Those are some of the most popular sites near each station, so if you are planning a trip to Kurashiki, you can be aware that Shin-Kurashiki Station is NOT the same as Kurashiki Station. For some this may seem obvious, but it can also be an easy thing to forget!
