Today was a stunning day to go to Konpira-san. Konpira Shrine is on the top of Mount Zouzu, and there are 1,368 steps from the bottom to the top. Today we went with our little girls (ages 4 and 6) and they could do it, so I feel confident that you can do it too, should you brave the long stone staircases. There are lots of places to stop along the way, including places for sake, so do not despair! We took lots of breaks and the kids had a great time.

Konpira-san (Mount Konpira) is a very popular place for local people in Kagawa. It is beautiful and serene, and very few foreign visitors know about it, how to get there, and really how spectacular the experience is. Our job is to let you know a little more about it. Come along with us along the way!

I will take some time to update the new page on this site and hope that it inspires you a little to consider coming out this way to experience the area and some of the wonderful treasures here for you to enjoy.
