Kankakei寒霞渓

Valley

Shodoshima offers scenery to enjoy in all four seasons. Kankakei, located nearly in the center of the island, is a valley located between the island’s highest peak of Mt. Hoshigajo and Shihozashi. Andesite and agglomerate, which formed approximately 13 million years ago due to volcanic activity, have turned over a long period of time into strangely shaped rocks and bizarre stones. From the ropeway visitors can enjoy fresh green foliage in the early summer, the intense colors of the leaves in the autumn, and the beauty of the Seto Inland Sea, and even encounter unusual flora and fauna on the hiking trail. It is ranked as one of Japan’s three most beautiful gorges, and this valley offers some of Shodoshima’s most picturesque scenery.

          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.
