Discover Traditional Skill × Art in Takamatsu

Craftsmen in this area were called “Sanuki” during Edo period, when their high skill was nurtured. At Kuribayashi Park, you can enjoy the beauty of the garden created by the feudal lord of the Takamatsu Domain at that time, as well as the local food of Sanuki in a tea room. The sugar-sweet (Wasambon) making workshop with a mould lets you experience the traditional sweet-cooking while listening to the talk of the craftsman who conveys the traditional skill of Sanuki to day.

Takamatsu city, Historic Ruin of Takamatsu Castle, Tamamo Park

Takamatsu Castle is one of the three water castles of Japan, leading sea water from the Seto Inland Sea directly into the moat. The tsukimi yagura watch tower "Hiunkaku", which is appointed as an Important Cultural Property by the government of Japan, remains in the park along with the special beautiful spot Hiunkaku Garden. Let's ride on a traditional boat and cruise the moat, enjoying the powerful architecture of the Tenshukaku castle tower and watching red sea breams in the water.

 

Takamatsu city, Special Beautiful Spot Kuribayashi Park

This garden park had been used as a villa for 228 years until 1868 by the Matsudaira Family, the feudal lord of Takamatsu Domain. The generations of the lords repaired the architecture inside and maintained the garden. It is the largest gardens among those appointed as Special Beautiful Spot, consisting of 6 ponds, 13 artificial hills and 1,400 pine trees with Mt. Shiun on the back located in the west. You can enjoy passing through the bridge on a traditional boat or teatime at Kikugetsutei restaurant, which had been favoured by the feudal lords for generations. Please feel the slowly passing time in the middle of the town.

 

Takamatsu city, Mt. Yashima Peak

Yashima is known as an old battle field from the 9 century. The unique figure consisting of a lava plateau is a landscape that represents Kagawa prefecture. A stunning view spot from any angle.
