Shikoku: Places to Explore

Kotohira

The Konpira Shrine is the draw here: this mountaintop temple housing the Shinto deity who protects seafarers draws pilgrims from all over Japan. Though it’s a long climb up a flight of stone steps, the shrine and its views of the Inland Sea are worth it. Other than the shrine, there’s not much else in town. An evening stroll along its canal-lined streets can be pleasant, if you have limited time on Shikoku you’ll want to stay elsewhere.
