Ichinomiyaji Temple一宮寺


An old temple located in the center of Ichinomiya Town, Takamatsu City, Ichinomiyaji Temple is the 83rd temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. The Sho-Kannon bodhisatva placed in the main hall as the primary deity worshipped is thought to have been carved by Kobo Daishi when his visited this area during the construction of the 88 sacred places on the Shikoku Pilgrimage. The best sight may be the camphor tree-focused garden built along the worship road. It was created by Kyoto’s famous gardener, Minoru Fujii and it gives you deeper healing and more varied emotions each time you visit.

          Kagawa 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.
