The Kotohira Kaiyo Hakubutsukan maritime science museum is located immediately adjacent to the Kanamaru-za theater, Japan’s oldest Kabuki theater, where Konpira Kabuki performances are held; the theater is situated on the pathway leading up the famous Konpira-san shrine, dedicated to the god of the sea. The museum has a sound theatre, models that recreate an Edo-period harbor, a ship maneuvering simulator that allows visitors to experience steering a ship, etc., along with a wide range of materials relating to nature (with a focus on the sea), ships and maritime affairs.

Review of Umi no Kagakukan

Reviewed:2020/01/22 今昔の船
海上交通の神様であるこんぴらさんにちなんだ施設だ。ほかけ船や千石船などのほか江戸時代の船や施設、さらには現代の船、瀬戸大橋の建設、南極船などの様子が展示されている。
Reviewed:2019/07/15 海上交通に関する博物館
個人的には、輸送機関が大好きな指向にドンピシャの素晴らしい博物館でした。訪問客が少なくゆっくり観覧できたのも個人的には良かったですね。金刀比羅宮は海上交通の神様、よって海上交通に関する博物館が金刀比羅にあるのは何の問題もない、いいね?-アッハイ
Reviewed:2019/07/06 原寸大のこんぴら船が展示されている
海の神様として親しまれている金刀比羅宮なので、山上にも船が置いてあったりします。参道の途中にあったので立ち寄りました。有料ですが、江戸時代の船着き場のことや原寸大のこんぴら船などの展示があり勉強になりました。

          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.
