Kagawa prefecture is located in the northeast corner of Shikoku, and also features 110 small islands of the Seto Inland Sea in its jurisdiction. In order to cope with limited water resources, more than 14,000 reservoirs have been built around the prefecture, and half of the agricultural water used in the prefecture comes from these reservoirs. One of the most famous local food products is Sanuki udon, with noodles made from high quality wheat and salt, and broth made from local seafood. Additional local specialty food products include soy sauce and olives. Naoshima island is a hotspot for contemporary art, and the Michelin three-star Japanese garden, Ritsurin Garden, located not far from Takamatsu Station, is visited by travelers from all over the world.

Ritsurin Garden: It is the only place which is designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty of the nation in Shikoku Island. It has been highly evaluated internationally as a circuit style garden founded by a feudal lord, with almost 400 years of history. In 1631, part of the garden around Nanko (a South Pond) was made by IKOMA Takatoshi, a feudal lord of Sanuki area (an old name of Kagawa prefecture). Then it was handed over to MATSUDAIRA Yorishige, who became the first lord of Takamatsu domain (a feudal domain covering the east part of Sanuki area) in 1642. The whole garden was completed as Ritsurin Retreat in 1745 in the reign of the fifth lord, Yoritaka, and since then had been maintained and used as a suburban residence of MATSUDAIRA family for 11 generations until the Meiji Restoration in the late 19th century. Since 1875, it has been opened to the public as a garden of the prefecture, and was designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty of the nation under the Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties in 1953. Common reverse design of 1000 yen silver coin: Snow Crystals, Moon and Cherry Blossoms.
