Shionoe Onsen-kyo (塩江温泉郷)
Shionoe Onsen-kyo was discovered by the monk Gyoki during the Nara period about 1,300 years ago. Much like it was in days gone by, it's the oldest hot spring resort in the prefecture and is known as the Back Parlor of Takamatsu. It's blessed with a natural environment where visitors can take in the gorgeous scenery when the leaves turn color in the fall. The Shionoe Momiji Festival is held in mid-November.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
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.
