Okayama is a port city and the capital of Japan's Okayama Prefecture (Chugoku region, Honshu Island) with population around 0,7 million. The town received city status in 1889 and is best-known with the Koraku-en Garden (one of Japan's three most popular gardens) and the 16th-century Okayama Castle (completed in 1597).

As cruise port, Okayama is visited mainly by smaller-sized luxury ships owned by all-inclusive companies like Ponant, Silversea, Crystal, Azamara.

During WW2 (1939-1945), the city had a Japanese Army base. At the end of the war (June 29), the city was heavily bombed by the USA and almost entirely destroyed by fires caused by the dropped incendiary bombs. During the US air raids was also completely destroyed the Okayama Castle (in 1966 replicated in concrete).

Into Okayama City were merged 4 neighbouring towns - Mitsu and Nagasaki (in 2005) and Takebe and Seto (in 2007). City's economy is based on agriculture (rice, eggplant, white onion, peaches, grapes), industry (machine tool production, food production, chemicals, printing), commerce (shopping, services, news), education, shipping, tourism.

The city is served by two airports - Konan Airport (for small planes / domestic flights only) and Okayama Momotaro Airport (international, located approx 18 km / 11 mi northwest of downtown).
