Konpira-san is a Shinto shrine that dates back to the 1st century, in the town of Kotohira in Kagawa, Shikoku. It stands at over 500m above sea level, halfway up Mount Zozu. To reach the shrine you have to climb a long path, which comprises of over 1,300 steps. On the way to the top there is a sake museum, various shops selling souvenirs, and there are lots of stones in which the names of donators to the shrine are carved in Japanese. Once you reach the top there are places to rest and eat. The views from the top are great too.
