Kotohira-gu Shrine (金刀比羅宮)

Event

A Shinto shrine located midway up 521 meter high Mt. Zozu in Kotohira Town. Locals call the shrine Konpira-san. In autumn, the 100 thousand square meter grounds of the shrine are dyed red and gold with autumn foliage, making it an excellent destination to enjoy the fall colors. A Maple Festival is also held here when the leaves are at their peak beauty. Here you can experience an atmosphere like something out of a dynastic picture scroll.

          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.
