The green plant climbing the red wall is the most distinctive ivy square in the Kurashiki Bibi area. Among the many traditional Japanese houses in the Bibi area, there is a very special European-style plaza. The floor tiles are red and the surrounding buildings are all red. The red brick wall is covered with creepers. When summer comes, the eyes are red and green. There are some cast-iron tables and chairs in the center of the square. You can sit down and relax in the sun, watching the turtles in the pool climb up the islands to bask in the sun.
This attraction is called Ivy Plaza and was originally the site of the Kurashiki Textile Factory in Ohara during the Meiji period. Kurashiki has always been Japan's most important textile base, and now it is also the most important producer of denim. Summer is the most beautiful season of the Ivy Square. The red brick building is covered with creepers and is full of greenery. The wide atrium square hosts a beer garden self-service bar during summer.
The characteristic of Ivy Square is that the red brick wall is covered with ivy, full of romantic atmosphere. This is the redevelopment of the red brick warehouse of Kurashiki Textilesho which was built in 1889 and converted it into a hotel. There is a large square in the middle, where you can sit and drink coffee, which is very relaxing. There are pottery classrooms, music box shops, and various craft shops in Okayama in the surrounding buildings.
