Kotohira is a small town in Kagawa Prefecture, which is famous for Kompirasan, Shikoku's most popular shrine. Kompira-san is dedicated to seafaring, and is said to have one of the most difficult shrine approaches in Japan. Nearby is the historical Kanamaruza kabuki theater.
At the top of a 1,368 step pilgrimage to the top of Konpira-san is where the famous Konpira Shrine awaits. The long journey up the steps may sound like a challenge, but the views of the shrine and the scenery is well worth the trip.
