    Kagawa Pref. Shouzugunshoudoshimachou Tanoura
    This is a theme park that has repurposed the open set that served as the filming location in the 1987 movie Twenty-Four Eyes. Homes, the school and fishermen’s residences that stand side-by-side harken back to the early Showa period and convey the appearance of the film’s world. In addition to the Tsuboi Sakae Memorial Museum dedicated to the author of the novel the film was based on, the Shochikuza Movie Theater that regularly screens Twenty-Four Eyes, and the “Kinema no Iori” gallery that introduces various Japanese films of the 1950s, there is also a restaurant and cafe on site.

    A short visit to see the old movie set for 24-eyes. It was interesting to see the old buildings and history of the author of the original book.

    Kagawa Pref. Shouzugunshoudoshimachou Nakayama
    The Senmaida terraced rice fields are located in Nakayama district in the center of Shodoshima (Shodo Island). They are the only terraced rice fields in Kagawa Prefecture selected for inclusion in the “Top 100 Most Beautiful Terraced Rice Fields in Japan.” There are around 800 individual fields, which appear to climb in “waves” up the slopes of the hills, to a height of 200 meters above sea-level. This area is famous as the location for many scenes in the award-winning movie Rebirth (Yokame no Semi). The Nakayama Mushi-okuri Festival, a traditional festival with a history going back around 300 years, is held locally every year in July.

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.
