Kotohira

    A small town in Kagawa Prefecture, Kotohira is famous as the location of Shikoku's most important shrine, Konpira-san, which sits at the top of Mount Zozu - reachable only by 1,368 stone steps. Whilst here, you should also pay a visit to Kanamaru-za, the oldest Kabuki theatre in Japan, and try a bowl of udon noodles - a local speciality.
