At 4:00 we met our last local guide, Yasumasa Omori, at a parking lot. He is a volunteer guide for English speaking tourists, but his command of English is subpar. We had difficulty understanding, but we could tell about his love of his part of Takamatsu.
We walked his route, looking at sad tourist sites, including the Aquarium, a shrine, abandoned buildings, empty shops and the non-existent tourist.
He wanted to show us the beautiful sunset from atop of the mountain, but we were tired after a full day of touring. We thanked him and gave him a box of Hawaiian choc-mac nut candy.

We traveled here to visit Yashima-ji and Shikuko Mura.

We took a train here from Takamatsu, the fare to Kotoden Yashima was ¥250 per person. The schedule for the bus up the mountain to Yashima-ji did not mesh with the arrival of the train.

We had a long wait and were able to take some photos from in front of the station. Once the bus arrived it was a relatively short ride up the mountain to the temple.

If you want to visit the temple and Shikuko Mura plan on half a day for each site.

This is one of my recommended places in Kagawa. The view from the top of the mountain is nice and breathtaking.

Yashima-ji, Temple 84 of the Shikoku Temple Pilgrimage is also found here.

Taking a tour from the Cruise ship we arrived at the view point after a stroll past the souvenir venders along a narrow winding street. Cafe at the top. You can get ice creams or Japanese keepsakes in the shops but the best thing to take home is memories and photographs of the great views.

You walk through a very old Buddhist temple to get to the overlook. There are restaurants and tourist shops.

We hiked up the pilgrimage route, which has pavement and is well maintained. On the tol there is a temple, several view points, castle remains etc. Also restrooms and stores to buy things in.

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, the temple at the top is part of the 88 Buddhist Temple Pilgrimage, and it is so pleasant over all.

Regarding the hiking element, if you are starting off from the train station it will be a bit of a climb, but take your time and enjoy the ascent. It is not so steep but will take a good amount of time. If you are driving, you can get much closer to the summit in less time.

Once at the top give yourself at least an hour to explore the buildings and to enjoy the tremendous views!

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 is very beautiful so I hope the city will do something about it.

Went there many times. You can go there by car or hike to the top. It's stunning on the top of the mountain. Amazing view and things to see. I recommend you to have a cup of coffee or have an ice cream in one of the restaurants there while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
