Exploring the filming set of the 1987 remake of Twenty-Four Eyes (Nijushi no Hitomi), a story about a female teacher and her first-grade students set in 1928 through 1946, depicting life before and after WWII. Though I have not watched the movie at the point of the visit, it was still an interesting and memorable experience.
Aside from the ropeway, another good way to explore Kankakei is by one of the hiking trails between Kountei (lower station) and the Sancho Summit Station. I opted for the Omote 12 Scenes Trail, passing by some amazing views and interesting rock formations, which was amplified by the beautiful autumn foliage during the season.
Basking in the beautiful sights of Kankakei Gorge in Shodoshima via the Kankakei Ropeway, a 5 minutes ride. The view of the sky, sea and gorge all in one is one of the most beautiful sights I have seen, added with the fiery autumn colors appearing in the second half of November.
Taking a stroll on Angel Road, a sandbar which appears only twice a day during low tide. Famous as a lover’s sanctuary, Angel Road is known to fulfil love wishes by crossing the sandbar with a loved one.
My first trip to Shikoku – exploring Shodoshima Island! Walking up a flight of stairs and rocks to see these pile of rocks called Kasaneiwa, which is not known whether it was formed naturally or not. Still a wonder how these rocks piled on top of each other.
