Takamatsu Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


The principal gateway to the island of Shikoku, Takamatsu is located on the Inland Sea. Severely damaged by bombings during the Second World War, during which the city lost its castle dating from the late 16C, the main showpiece of this modern, industrialised city survived: Ritsurin-koen, a magnificent Edo-era stroll garden. To the southwest, 1hr away by train, lies Kotohira Shrine, one of the most sacred in Japan.
