Sightseeing Spot Spots in Marugame / Kotohira Area

  • Zenigata Sunae
    Travel / Tourism
    Kagawa Pref. Kanonjishi Ariakechou
    Zenigata Sunae is a large sand carving of an old copper coin used in the Edo period. It is located in the Kotohiki Park, a nationally designated place of scenic beauty. The impressive looking sand carving is 122 meters in length from east to west and 90 meters from north to south. For best views it is recommended to look from the top of Mt. Kotohiki. In recent years the place has gained a reputation for bringing good luck in terms of money, and at night the sand carving is lit up making for quite an impressive sight.
  • Flower Park Urashima
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Kagawa Pref. Mitoyoshi Takumachoutsumu 528-1
    This large municipal park lets visitors enjoy seasonal flowers including marguerites, marigolds, poppies, cosmoses, evening primroses, and more. It's particularly popular in May when the marguerites are in full bloom blanketing one side of the park in pure white, enveloping visitors in their scent while they look out at the Seto Inland Sea.
  • Honen-ike Dam (Stone Arch Dam)
    Travel / Tourism
    Kagawa Pref. Kanonjishi Onoharachoutanono 1050
    This masonry arch dam on the upper reaches of the Kunita River has the feel of a medieval European castle. It's 145.5 meters long, 30.4 meters high, and retains a concrete encased reservoir. A historically valuable public works project for agriculture, it has been designated an Important Cultural Property.
  • Shonai Peninsula
    Travel / Tourism
    Kasama-cho, Santoyo City, Kagawa Prefecture
    Mt. Shiude rises over the central Shonai Peninsula where Seisan (Western part of Kagawa) juts into the Seto Inland Sea. A well-known cherry blossom and azalea viewing area, you can get a panoramic view that includes the slopes blooming with flowers and the many islands of the Seto area from the summit of Mt. Shiude. The peninsula is associated with the Japanese folktale of Urashima Taro, and you can do a tour that takes in highlights tied to the legend.
  • Mt. Shiude
    Travel / Tourism
    Kasama-cho, Santoyo City, Kagawa Prefecture
    This mountain is on the Shonai Peninsula, which is closely associated with the legend of Urashima Taro (a popular Japanese folk tale). As the story goes, Urashima Taro opened a box and white smoke poured out, collecting as a purple cloud over Mt. Shiude (a mountain of emerging purple clouds). The spectacular view from the top of the mountain has gorgeous seasonal scenery year-round. It's particularly stunning when its roughly 1,000 cherry trees are in full bloom.

    Kagawa Sakaide-shi Oyabucho 3042

    4月にツインルーム山側に2泊しました。ツインルームは少なく海側は空いてませんでした。和室はたくさんあるみたいですが。。。きっと海側は瀬戸内海が見渡せて、絶景だと想像します。レストランからの景色が素晴らしいです。部屋はゆったりと広くて、大きなスーツケースを広げても楽々余裕がありました。1日はバイキング料理を食事しました。お刺身もたくさんあり満足でした。2日は追加料金がかかりましたが、おこぜの懐石料理...

    四国別格20霊場第18番札所、海岸寺さんです。正式名称では、屏風浦海岸寺となっています。その言われは、本堂から石畳を進みますと裏手側に、穏やかな海の瀬戸内海が広がります。その浜から見上げます山々は、まるで立て方屏風のような形をしていることから、その浜を屏風の浜と呼ばれています。そのことから屏風浦海岸寺さんとなっているようです。このお寺は、本堂と奥の院の大師堂が、かなり離れていますので、本堂にありま...

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.
