Takamatsu, Shikoku

  Jan 28th, 2012

Takamatsu is the one of the gateway cities to Shikoku . Trains coming across the Seto Ohashi bridge as well as ferries coming from small islands and the main land, arrive at Takamatsu. It is an open planned city with beautiful parks and old style shopping arcades. A great base to explore the Setonaikai from, it also has its own rich history and culture.

Coming out of the station at Takamatsu, there is a new plaza (Hiroba) that has been built. It has a real European feel to it
