Kagawa: Stepping Into The Past

Kotohira, in western Kagawa Prefecture, developed around the famous shrine complex known as Kotohira-gu. Some 2 million tourists visit annually from all over the world. In the olden days, pilgrims who came from around the country bought Uchiwa paper fans as souvenirs, and enjoyed eating the local specialty Sanuki noodles. Shizuka Anderson from Canada experiences the culture of hospitality that developed around these pilgrimages.
