  • This is one of my recommended places in Kagawa. The view from the top of the mountain is nice and breathtaking. Yashima-ji, Temple 84 of the Shikoku Temple Pilgrimage is also found here.  more »
  • Taking a tour from the Cruise ship we arrived at the view point after a stroll past the souvenir venders along a narrow winding street. Cafe at the top. You can get ice creams or Japanese keepsakes...  more »

  • Original is a mountain which was the island became a peninsula in landfills. You've heard of Takamatsu, looks at the shape of the roof is the origin of the name. Genpei War battlefield in the East, views of Mt. tsurugi 5 further East. Yashima-ji Temple, YAMAGAMI Aquarium is located on the mountain views are views of the Seto Inland Sea National Park. Takamatsu is seen at night, day and night is a great point. Collection of old houses at the foot of the South village in Shikoku, there turn out not as tourist places in one day alone the Yashima.
