Other Sightseeing Spot

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 Main 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.
