    Kagawa Shozu-gun Tonoshocho Yoshi
    This is a bronze statue erected at the Tonosho Port, the front door to Shodo Island. It is as though the characters in the immortal literary work, Twenty-Four Eyes, by the author Tsuboi Sakae are coming out to greet all those arriving at Shodo Island, from whence she hailed. This area, near the high-speed boat terminal, was also the site where the movie Boku to Mama no Kiiroi Jitensha, released in 2009, was shot. It is a quintessentially Shodo Island looking area surrounded by olive trees. Modeled after the 12 students and the female teacher, the statue symbolizes the desire for peace and happiness to all.

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.
