Easily overseen by tourists. This quiet town has a fabulously scenic walk and has lot of hikes to offer – e.g. Alps Azumino, Mount Hikarujo etc. Whether you choose to visit Hotaka shrine, onsen, wasabi farm or just walking around the town, there is NO CROWD. Peace at last!!

Had a Maiko make over experience and it was breath taking, literately. First of all, starting from the underclothing, breathing feels like a privilege. Every breath becomes an effort. After 2 hours of hair, make up and serious layers of clothing, the faux Maiko me is made. Tata! Asian deluxe me.
Nakano udon school 中野うどん学校 is located in Kotohira 琴平町, just outside of Takamatsu 高松市. This small town has it all going – shrine, onsen and lots of sanuki udon eateries. Kotohira is mainly known for its shrine, Kompirasan daigongen 金刀比羅宮… in short, it is the shrine with a 785 steps hike (people are […]
