Cruises from Takamatsu
The modern Japanese city of Takamatsu, facing the Seto Inland Sea, is the main gateway to Shikoku Island. While the downtown is relatively easy to navigate on foot, many visitors choose to rent a bicycle. Takamatsu has a number of long arcade-style shopping streets, giving the city's shopping a more traditional feel. You'll find shops of all sorts on these streets, much as you would at a mall.
Local government offices, public agencies, and shops line Chuo-dori, the modern central street that stretches to the south from Takamatsu Harbor.
