Okayama prefecture is in the western Chugoku region of the main Japanese island Honshu. With more sunny days and fewer rainy days than most other prefectures, Okayama is nicknamed the Land of Sunshine.
Okayama is a major transit hub for western Japan. But with white peaches, a brooding black castle, and the famous garden of Kōrakuen, there are plenty of reasons to catch a later train and get out of the station to explore.
Niimi is a city in Okayama Prefecture, Japan. The JR Kishin Line traveling from the east, and the JR Geibi Line from the west, stop in Niimi, and the JR Hakubi Line connects to Niimi from the north and south.
