We are extremely demanding and we don't give 'perfect 10s' but this trip was close.

Kotohira & Takamatsu

Kotohira and Takamatsu lie side by side in the prefecture of Kagawa at the northern tip of Shikoku Island. As the closest point to the Honshu mainland across the sparkling waters of Setouchi inland sea, Takamatsu is a bustling harbor city, home to many cultural sites of importance, among which are remnants of its past as a flourishing feudal castle town. Kotohira, to its southwest, is a small historic town that's home to the largest of the island's shrines, Kotohira Shrine (or Konpira-San), named after the ancient god of sailors, Konpira-gu. Takamatsu is a city with broad appeal - it's got all the modern diversions of an economic hub, plenty of historic and cultural attractions, and a stunning geographic position to top it off. Meanwhile Kotohira, about a 50-minute drive away, offers an immersive cultural experience within its Shinto shrine complex. The town is also home to the country's oldest surviving kabuki playhouse, the beautifully preserved Kanamaru-za Theater.
