Yashima is approx. 30 minutes by car from the city center of Takamatsu and also accessible by train and bus. This mountain (an ancient island) is a plateau featuring a roof-like shape. Visitors enjoy viewing its seasonal landscape.
Enjoy viewing cherry blossoms in spring, the islands in the balmy sea in summer, shiny red leaves in autumn and a fantastic view of the mountain with snow on some days in winter.
On the top of the mountain is Yashima Temple, which is temple No. 84 on the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage. The mountain has several routes for exploration, including a pilgrimage road, climbing route and ancient road. Try to walk on these roads as much as your time and physical strength allow.
The mountain also features many must-see sights, including an aquarium on the summit, which is rare, a temple where a legendary raccoon dog is enshrined and a historical site.
The most popular site for enjoying a stunning view is Shishinoreigan observation deck. Located at an altitude of approx. 300 meters, this observation deck commands a splendid view of Takamatsu City and the Seto Inland Sea, which features many islands. You can also see the Seto Ohashi bridge on a fine day.
