  • Because it was on the mountain, i could see the seto inland sea and it was beautiful. The parking lot was 300 yen once for a fee. It was a good place to walk.

  • There are many tourist facilities such as Yajima-ji Temple, Yajima Castle and Aquarium, and there is also a large parking lot. The shop is not good, but there is also a free rest area. The driveway is free, so you can relax with a great view. I hope there will be more facilities and exhibits about the Genpei Battle, but I'm sorry.

  • Original is a mountain which was the island became a peninsula in landfills. You've heard of Takamatsu, looks at the shape of the roof is the origin of the name. Genpei War battlefield in the East, views of Mt. tsurugi 5 further East. Yashima-ji Temple, YAMAGAMI Aquarium is located on the mountain views are views of the Seto Inland Sea National Park. Takamatsu is seen at night, day and night is a great point. Collection of old houses at the foot of the South village in Shikoku, there turn out not as tourist places in one day alone the Yashima.
