Known only for being the home of the Kompirasan Shrine Complex, the tiny town of Kotohira-cho remains a popular day trip destination from larger nearby cities. Any trip to Kotohira-cho must include a tour of the shrine, famously perched on top of a steep hill, requiring a long climb. Other things to do in Kotohira-cho are scarce, but nevertheless include a couple of museums, seeing a performance in a traditional "kabuki" theater, or taking a dip in the "onsen" bathhouse. While in town, don't forget to sample the Sanuki noodles, wheat udon with a local twist. Kotohira-cho is in Nakatado-gun. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Japan trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
