A modern city and a major transport hub facing Seto Inland Sea, Takamatsu offers a bustling city lifestyle contrasted with carefully manicured, tranquil green areas at the foot of the mountains and the lava plateau. Things to do in Takamatsu include a tour of the restored ruins of a castle that uses seawater in its moat, as well as checking out famous Edo-period landscape gardens built around scenic ponds, some of the most beautiful man-made green areas in Japan. Two nearby romantic islands, just offshore from the busy port, abound with folk culture and enough leisure activities to warrant a full day trip. The city's humid subtropical climate provides pleasant conditions for sightseeing year-round. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Takamatsu and add them to your vacation plans using our Japan travel itinerary planner.
