 Kagawa prefecture is famous for udon noodles!

Takamatsu, Japan, is a coastal city in the Kagawa Prefecture on Shikoku Island. Compared to the other four main islands, Shikoku is the smallest and the least-populated island. Takamatsu is the capital of the prefecture and the city has the closest port to Honshu, the largest Japanese island. The geographical location was the reason for the economic growth as a castle town during the Edo period, between the seventeenth and nineteenth century. Nowadays, the city has many important companies' branch offices -- such as the crane manufacturer Tadano -- which are very important for the local economy. Around four hundred twenty thousand people live in the capital of Kagawa Prefecture, which is also known as the “Gateway to Shikoku.”

Ritsurin Park is an outstandingly beautiful park, which was originally built for Sanuki and Sasuma lords. This very large Japanese landscape garden is considered one of the best gardens in Japan. The park boasts hills, several ponds, traditional pavilions, and historic trees. On the premises, you can also find shops, rest houses, and a folk museum. Tamamo Park is another lovely park in the centre, which is also home to the ruins of Takamatsu Castle. The castle was built in the sixteenth century; nowadays, only few original buildings of the castle still stand in this park. The original structures include walls, moats, the Ashaimon Gate, and two turrets. If you are interested in the local history, check out Yashima, a peninsula east of the city centre. The place is famous for the Battle of Yashima, a naval battle in the twelfth century. In Yashima, you can also visit the interesting Yashima Temple and the New Yashima Aquarium.
