"Known to locals as ""Okaruten-san,"" since ancient times people have come to pray at this Buddhist temple for luck in conceiving children, easy childbirth, and the protection of children and women. The temple is dedicated to the Buddhist deity Hariti, also known as Kishimojin. Prior to praying at the temple, worshippers purify themselves with pomegranate scented incense. This incense serves as a symbol of the temple; its fragrance is also highly relaxing, and the incense makes a great gift or souvenir."

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.
