It is the largest city in Kagawa Prefecture on the island of Shikoku. Yashima is a mini haven for those fascinated by local historical places and is just 10 min away by train. Festivals are a pompous affair in this locale. With beautiful fireworks, graceful dance performances and splurging on the shopping arcade is typical picturesque view of Sanuki Takamatsu Festival. Winter festival is another time when this city lights up to showcase the beautiful Christmas displays. If you plan to stay here longer, trail along the temples, museums and shrines that will help you tour this quaint city better.
