The Ancient Kibi Culture Center is located on the mountain behind Kibitsu Shrine, and it houses some artifacts from Okayama's ancient Kibi kingdom. The artifacts are quite well-preserved, and entrance is free!

It's a rather small area, but with free entry, one can't really complain. What they do have is interesting, and if you are travelling on the Kibiji District cycling road, you may find it worthwhile to stop by to get a glimpse into the culture of the area's former inhabitants (there is also a Kibi museum near Kokubunji Temple on the Kibiji cycling path in the Soja area that is larger, if you are interested. I wasn't able to visit that museum though).

A short walk from the Kibi Ancient Cultural Property Center (down towards Kibitsu Shrine) is the Goryo Mausoleum, as well.

It takes about 20 minutes to view the artifacts in the museum.

Directions: Walk up the mountain behind Kibitsu Shrine. There are signs along the way. It's just past the Goryo Mausoleum and Taxi depot.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
