There's a lookout above the gorge with a 360-degree view.

    I went here twice in 2010 and 2003 and it was better before because the surroundings were more natural. Later on, it looks more close to a zoo. The monkeys are free to roam around the side of a...

    You have to go there. Calling it a museum is irony- it is an installation, rather, the most minimalistic and fascinating space you will ever experience.

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.
