The small village of Kotohira (琴平) is home to one of Shikoku's most famous tourist attractions, Konpira-san, a Shintō shrine dedicated to the god of seafarers. Ascending its 1368 steep stone steps is a rite of passage for many Japanese people, with plenty of interesting en-route distractions. Mention to any older Japanese person that you've been to Shikoku and one of the first things they'll ask you is whether you climbed Konpira-san.
