Yashima is the site of the Genpei War, and there are some historical sites such as the Pond of Blood. From Yashima, I could enjoy panoramic view of the battlefield.
The climb up was tough, so naturally the descent was tough too. Moreover, the road was muddy due to rain and slippery. When I came down to Dannoura, there were historical sites such as Emperor Antoku’s shrine and Yoshitsune’s archery display.
I also visited Susaki-ji where there’s the grave of Shinnen, who is said to be the father of Shikoku pilgrimage, and put his efforts on the construction of the pilgrimage route. His grave was originally in Shioya, Mure-cho, but was moved to this location.
