Yashimahiji is great place to visit. Nice expansive views -great statues and temple buildings. Temple is number 84 on Shikoku pilgrimage. I walked up from train station and the incline is steady uphill but not overly steep.

As a long time resident of Takamatsu, I usually find myself at Yashima a few times every years. I always take our guests there because the area is beautiful, the scenery is awesome, the place has historical relevance to the Heike-Taira war during medieval Japan,...More

Great view from the mountain. The contrast to the view of city and houses and the sea with full of small island is spectacular. Good walking around the viewing point. There was a rundown building and it was a bit disappointing. Rest of the mountain...More

I did this in the afternoon (after visiting Megijima in the morning). Took the Kotoden and then the bus to Yashima mountain top. Considered walking up but seems a little difficult to find the way. Didn’t regret taking the bus actually, because even the paved...More

Since it is a bit too far from the centre of Takamatsu city, we took "Udon bus" which took us for two udon shops and in between to Yashima. It was a good and reasonable half-day tour and highly recommended.

We took the bus up. Even though we could read Kanji, the bus schedule was unclear because it wrote something like "buses not operating in December". Maybe our misinterpretation. Up top the view is great, although more information (especially guides in English) about the surrounding...More

Need 3-4 hours to visit as bus from bottom of the mountain is NOT frequent. Taxi to go up costs JPY 1000-1200 and bus is around JPY 200 The temple there is huge and need lots of walking but view overlooking the city is gorgeous.

Mt. Yashima is a small mountain with wonderful views overlooking the Inland Sea. It is a great place for a mixed group to visit because there is something for everyone at the top: temple #84 on the Shikoku Pilgrimage, gift shops and restaurants to fit...More
