    Kagawa Pref. Zentsujishi Zentsujichou 3-4-11
    Kumaoka Kashiten is a retro-style traditional Japanese confectionery store. It sells Ishi-pan (“Stone Bread”) biscuits, which are reputed to be the hardest type of traditional confectionery in Japan. Ishi-pan was originally made as emergency rations for soldiers in wartime, as it keeps for a long time. Despite the fact that no drying agents or preservatives are used in the process of making them, they keep for around a month before going off; Ishi-pan became famous throughout Japan for how well it kept. Ishi-pan is much harder than ordinary hardtack biscuits, so much so that young children and senior citizens may find it impossible to chew. Ishi-pan has a slightly sweet flavor, with a hint of ginger.

    Kagawa Nakatado-gun Kotohiracho 802
    This is a store owned and operated by the Sugi Honey Farm, which undertakes all the processes for cultivating, harvesting and packing their own honey. With its distinctive modern white base decor in the old-town area along the pilgrimage rout to Konpira Shrine, this shop offers visitors a bright welcoming atmosphere. The honey soft-served ice cream, made with their own honey, has a refreshing cool sweetness. There is nothing as refreshing as this cool soft cream after one has climbed up the 785 steps to main shrine, or all the way up the 1368 steps to the inner shrine. They also offer a large assortment of original honeyed drinks with yuzu citrus, blueberry, acerola, mango and many more. In the cooler months, the same drinks are offered as hot beverages.

    They do sell them in Singapore’s Takashimaya but it is cheaper here. Join their membership for free and get discounts. I will recommend the yuzu honey drink. They also sell manuka honey and bee...

    Located a 10-minute walk from Utazu Station, this tofu shop can be identified by its large, shamoji rice scoop-shaped sign. The shop makes choice tofu using only domestically-grown soybeans. The shop’s staple firm momen tofu is crafted by the hands of skilled artisans according to an old-fashioned method called “brick piling,” resulting in a smooth texture normally only seen in silken kinugoshi tofu. The shop uses no defoamers, stabilizers, or other chemical additives whatsoever, and employs rare sun-dried natural bittern, resulting in a tofu that is both healthy and delicious.

    Kagawa Nakatado-gun Kotohiracho
    This is a dye shop at the foot of Konpira Shrine. This historic shop has carried on the traditional Kagawa prefectural art of Sanuki nori-zome (dyeing with glue) for over 100 years. Amidst the current trend of digital print dyes, the Sanuki nori-zome still carefully and painstakingly dyes each fabric by hand using the rice starch. The brightly colored patterns are created by placing rice starch where the color should not adhere. This warm deep-nuanced dyes are used for many prominent occasions, such as for the flags of Shikoku Konpira Kabuki Daishibai theater, the costumes for the ceremonial shishimai lion dances and for the festive flags for fishing boat decking.

    This district, formerly full of warehouses, is now a multi-complex area as an extension of the Kitahama Alley area. In these warehouses, just a 10-minute walk from Takamatsu Station, are housed over ten shops and stores of various businesses, such as galleries, cafes, flower shops, and bars. This area was developed to revitalize the deteriorating warehouses used to store navy cargo wares by diverting the space to commercial use.

Many events for introducing creative new styles and arts are held here.

    This Japanese confectionery shop, established in 1953, is directly across from the Kotoden Takamatsu Chikko Station. It sells seasonal Japanese sweets and the line of confections from the nationally designated Special Place of Scenic Beauty, Ritsurin Park. One of the most popular items, handed down since it’s founding, is the Ritsurin-no-Kuri sweet, with the distinction of appearing exactly like a real chestnut. The confection has a delicately flavored center of chopped chestnut and house-made white bean paste, to remind people that very long ago there were many chestnut trees in the Ritsurin Park.

Kagawa Areas

around-area-map

Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
