    Kagawa Pref. Shouzuguntonoshouchou Omi Kou 909-1
    This roadside station is located in Shodoshima Island's north-central region. About 40 stones are still on the site from when it was quarried for the expansion and repair of Osaka Castle's stone walls by the Tokugawa Shogunate. A museum showcases the stones and the tools used to transport them. The facility also has a shop and a café, making it a good spot for tourists to drop by while out for a drive.

    Not really a must-see. I really don't mind these kinds of structure so I don't look it up., but for history lovers its still one piece of local culture :)

Kagawa Main 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.
