Gateway to Shikoku

A modern city and a major transport hub facing Seto Inland Sea, Takamatsu offers a bustling city lifestyle contrasted with carefully manicured, tranquil green areas at the foot of the mountains and the lava plateau.
Get some cultural insight at Otsuka Museum of Art and Benesse House Museum. Get some historical perspective at Kotohira-gu and Kozaiji Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Takamatsu side-trips: Onaruto Bridge Hall Edy (in Naruto), Naoshima-cho (Ando Museum, Chichu Art Museum, &more) and Zentsu-ji Temple (in Zentsuji). There's more to do: walk around Ritsurin Garden.
