Mt. Shiude

Reviewed By Paul R - Brisbane

First of all, you should hire a car if you are planning on visiting Shikoku. The driving is easy as the roads are great and generally, the Japanese do not blow their horns or give you the fingers!!! The area is called the Shonai Peninsula and it is really worth driving around it. It's mainly coast road and you stumble on little fishing and small port villages. Drive up Route 232 all the way to the top of Mt Shiunde (Shiundeyama). There is a free car park and a further walk takes you to the outlook. Panoramic views of the Islands. There is a cafe also with floor to ceiling glass outlook!!! If you enjoy trail walking/hiking - there are many to do.

Iyadani-ji Temple

Reviewed By Lara N - Takamatsu, Japan

This temple is set in a forest at the top of a small mountain with nice views. There is a long staircase from the parking area, or you can pay 750 yen for a round-trip shuttle bus to the base of the temple complex. The hall dedicated to Kobo Daishi is carved out of the mountain and partly fills a cave. The main hall is at the top of a flight of uneven steps; take your time to enjoy the half-eroded carvings in the cliff along the way. The setting is very lovely and worth a special trip.

Motoyamaji temple

Reviewed By Lara N - Takamatsu, Japan

This little temple is nice, but not exceptionally noteworthy. There is a 5-story pagoda which is the main feature, but at the time of our visit, it was completely obscured with scaffolding due to renovations, so was not at all scenic. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area, Motoyama-ji is probably not a place to go out of your way to visit unless you are doing the Shikoku Pilgrimage.

津嶋神社(つしまじんじゃ)は、香川県三豊市北部の瀬戸内海に浮かぶ小島、津島に鎮座する神社です。
子供の守り神として広く信仰を集め、一年に二日間だけ橋に床板が張られ本社のある津島に渡れる日は大混雑だそうです。
なお拝殿は四国側にもあり通年、参拝する事が出来ます。

Daikoji Temple

Reviewed By お遍路さん京都市 - 京都市

何度も参拝している寺院ですが、いつもこの仁王門の金剛力士像には圧倒されるオーラがあります。これは四国最大級の金剛力士像です。この遍路寺はコンパクトで何故か印象も薄い寺です。多分、行程の関係で2日で12カ寺も遍路するからかな?それとも遍路寺間の所要時間が他の県との比較で余り長くないからかな?ここも四国の放火魔兼殺戮者・破壊者の小心者、長曾我部元親に本堂以外は焼失させられので他の堂宇は後年に再建されたものです。

Missing Post Office

Reviewed By David-Ogi - Takamatsu, Japan

This place is something special and quite unique. The building is the actual former post office of Awashima. And the old man you will most likely meet there is Nakata-san, the former postmaster. However, nowadays the Post Office is a very special one as it collects and receives letters with no recipients from anonymous people. You can read them there, and even write one.
It's one of those places, unique in the world, creating an alternate and beautiful reality.

 平成30年3月25日(日)現在では一分咲きでした。ネットで五分咲きとあったのででかけましたが、見事に違う情報でした。来週の4月1日が見頃ではないかと思いました。
 昔はバードゲージもあったと思いますが、痕跡もなくどこにもないようでした。

Chichibugahama Beach

Reviewed By Neko4515 - Takamatsu, Japan

 干潮と日没が重なる日を選んで訪問すると、若い特に女性で一杯です。活気あふれる楽しい海辺になっていますよ。みんな、撮影に夢中になっていて面白いです。ただ、夕陽を綺麗に撮るには安くても一眼カメラの登場になってしまいます。
 露出補正のできるカメラでしたら、綺麗な夕焼けが撮れますがそうでないと、夕焼けを撮っても昼間の太陽のような写真に残念ですがなってしまいます。
