Kotohira-gu (Kompira-san) 5 Reviews

Above the hard distance of 1368 stone steps, there's an inner place 'Izutama Shrine'. It's called a protecting god of this main Kotohira Shrine and filled with spiritual power. And, only people who reach here at last can get this original good-luck charm embroidered 'tengu' with such a power.

Although it's very long stairs, you may be able to get a sense of accomplishment and wonderful views from there.

Kotohira-gu Shrine has a nickname 'Kompira-san' and it's famous for the long approach with as may as 785 steps. And in spring, the cherry blossoms decorates the precinct beautifully. Let's walk up the long steps under this beautiful scenery!◎You can see the cherry blossoms all over the shrine.

Shinto priests have cherry blossoms at their coronets, and shrine maidens have in their hands, they walk along the approach gracefully. The elegant music and dances also you should see. At Konpira-san in Kagawa Pref. (Sanuki), you can enjoy the graceful spring of Japan.
