Recommended Sightseeing Spots
This ancient temple stands on the summit of Mount Unpenji, which straddles Tokushima and Kagawa prefectures. It is 927 meters above sea level. It is also known as "Shikoku Koya" because it is the highest of the 88 sacred sites on the Shikoku pilgrimage route.
The temple was founded by Gyoki during the Tenpyo period (710-794), and later Kukai visited the temple and enshrined the eleven-faced Kannon as the principal deity. This Kannon is worshipped as a deity for good fortune and safe childbirth.
The temple was founded about 1,200 years ago by Kukai. It has many important cultural assets, and the carvings with motifs of sacred animals and flowers are unique and interesting. It takes about 4 minutes by ropeway to the gate.
When Kukai visited this hermitage in 815, the residents were suffering from an epidemic. He sealed the disease in the ground with his stick. Later, camellias sprouted from the buried stick, and the residents called the hermitage TSUBAKI（Camellia）-do.
Known as "Kompira-san" since ancient times, this shrine has protected the sea. There are many important cultural properties, and the Treasure House exhibits valuable art works. It is famous for the long 1368-step staircase leading up to the inner shrine.
The beauty of the canyon's cliffs has been designated a national scenic beauty spot. The 8-km-long gorge boasts beautiful scenery that looks like towering marble sculptures. Visitors can enjoy the seasonal scenery by pleasure boat or rafting.
It is one of the three most unique bridges in Japan. It is 45 m long, 2 m wide, and made of the vine "shirakuchikazura". Visitors can walk on it while swaying in the wind, and enjoy the thrilling experience of looking down on the clear Iya River.
Many prefectural natural treasures, such as Sagiso, and Kiseruazami, grow here. The special environment formed in ancient times has allowed the growth of giant watermoss, which has further promoted the development of the marshland flora.
