Antiques Spots in Takamatsu Area

  • Onoshita Breakwater
    Kagawa Takamatsu-shi Aji Cho 652-3
    This breakwater was used as a shooting location in the 200 film “Crying Out Love, In the Center of the World.” The scene filmed here, one of the movie’s most impactful, featured main characters Saku and Aki talking with each other as they watched the setting sun. Jutting out into the sea, the breakwater is caressed by the gentle breezes of Seto and is stunningly scenic on clear days. Sometimes couples can be seen sitting on the breakwater around sunset talking with each other in a reenactment of the movie scene. Also known as a great fishing spot, on weekends many fishing-lovers come here.

Kagawa Areas


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.
