Known only for being the home of the Kompirasan Shrine Complex, the tiny town of Kotohira-cho remains a popular day trip destination from larger nearby cities.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mt. Unpenji and Goshoji Temple. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Izutama Shrine and Shiromineji Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kotohira-cho: Kobokekyo Canyon (in Miyoshi), Sankaku Shrine (in Shikokuchuo) and Zentsuji (Mandara-ji Temple & Konzoji Temple). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Iyadani-ji Temple and steep yourself in history at Kyu Zentsujikaikosya.
