The small train from the city to Yashima is very cartoon, only two sections, and it is the most traditional way of walking on the ground. Every intersection is put down with guardrails, accompanied by loud noises. The bus going up the mountain only runs every 20 minutes. Some people think the traffic is inconvenient, but I don't think so. Coming here is to pursue the rare idleness and tranquility, so why bother to demand compactness? Lost minutes and seconds are unhindered, take your time, let's not hurry. The scenery on the top is invincible, especially in front of a homestay called Momotaro. It is definitely a wonderful place to watch the sunset.
Climbing is a bit tired for me who lack exercise. The air is good, and Yashima Temple is on the top of the mountain. It's worth going. Get off at Yashima Electric Railway Station, which is close to the mountain trail. Worth seeing!
The traffic is not convenient, if it is not self-driving, it may take more than half of the round trip. Yashima Temple on the mountain is very large, so you can visit here. In addition to Yajima Temple on the top of the mountain, there is also an observation deck that overlooks the city of Takamatsu and the Seto Inland Sea.
Take the bus to the mountain and start hiking. If you want to walk all the observation decks in the north and south, it will take about 2-3 hours. At the southern end of the Kanayama Observatory is relatively hidden, almost missed. After walking down to the abandoned cable car station, there is a small path next to the public toilet on the left, which leads to Mount Guan.
You can take a car up the hill along the toll road to a large parking lot with complete facilities. Tourists will be surprised that there are many shops selling small round clay tablets. This is to be thrown down the mountain, the farther the better. This is an imitation of the Warriors throwing away their helmets after victory, although it is hard to imagine their similarities.
It takes 3-4 hours to visit because the bus from the foot of the mountain to the top of the mountain is not very frequent. A taxi costs about 1,000-2,000 yen to get up, while a bus only costs about 200 yen. The temples here are huge, it takes a long time to walk but the view of the city is really beautiful.
In addition to Yajima Temple on the top of the mountain, there is also an observation deck that overlooks the city of Takamatsu and the Seto Inland Sea. Many shops on the mountain are selling small tiles. Throwing the tiles from the viewing platform means removing bad luck. Those who are interested can try it.
