Indescribably Beautiful Autumn Colors In Kankakei Valley

Kankakei in Shodoshima is one of the three most beautiful valleys in Japan, and best place to see fall foliage. The autumn colored mountains and Seto Inland Sea form indescribable scenery. I like the view seen from Takatori Observatory at the mountain top.

The first pic taken at Daiichi Observatory. The second and third pics taken at Takatori Observatory. Fall foliage of the mountain top begins from the middle of November, and goes down to the foot. You can enjoy fall foliage for a long term because of the altitude.

This is the Suitable Landscape Here. And the Only One in Kagawa as the 100 Beautiful Rice Terraces in Japan

There is the only one such a beautiful landscape of rice terrace in Kagawa that is selected as the best 100 in Japan. As you see, the contrast between blue and green is nice.
