Yashima

Yashima Yashima Yashima

Yashima is one of the sites where the Genji and the Heike fought each other during the Genpei War almost a thousand years ago. Funa-kakushi, a cove where the Heike hid their warships, and Inoriiwa, where archers prayed for their arrows to fly true, are just two of many sites at Dannoura where visitors can feel a connection with the history of ancient Japan.

From a roof-like lava plateau, you can take in a panoramic view of the Seto Inland Sea as it blends in with the islands and cityscape of Takamatsu. Yashimaji Temple is located at the summit, and is No. 84 of the 88 temples of the Shikoku Pilgrimage.
