Takamijima is one of the island of Shiwaku Islands in the west of Kagawa.
This island is surrounded by mountains.
Thus, there are many slopes and stone walls in this island.
The Setouchi seascape to look at from the hill of this island is splendid.
Therefore this island was used as a shooting place for a famous movie in Japan.
Slopes, stone walls and a relaxing time…
Here is the luxury time that nothing does.
In addition, Sanagishima Island which is famous as an island of the cats is near this island.
Guideline of sojourn time ： about 2.5 hours
If you have 2.5 hours, you can almost watch all art works.
There is no rent-a-bicycle in Takamijima.
Because there are many slopes in Takamijima, let’s take the shoes which are easy to walk.
There is a lot of art works which I do not introduce here. Please try to go this island, and watch all art work!
*Because there is an art work that photography is not possible, please be careful.
All artwork is very splendid.
The particularly recommended artwork is “No.147”, “No.150”, and “No.155” personally.
