This is a great way to see the surrounding towns and villages near Takamatsu as there are actually three tracks - this one which goes to Kotahira and the famous Konpira-san temple, one that heads west and another which heads east along the coast. You can get a two day ticket for unlimited rides on the whole Kotoden Electric network and its well worth it. I just rode to different stations got off and explored. The eastern track takes you to some beautiful shrines and temples as well as coastal villages.The Kotahira track takes you to Konpira-san so you will probably just sleep on it on the way back after climbing all those stairs up the mountain :-)

Definitely worth using the public transport - buses and trains. They are clean and very punctual. People are very willing to help if you get stuck.

This is a relatively convenient, local train that's great if you're not in any particular hurry to go anywhere or apparently if your a local student that needs to get to/from school, as it was almost completely filled after school as we returned from Kotohira. Having said that, we sat near the junction of the two car train and large gaps appeared in the dingy canopy and well-worn coupling between the cars, at times wondering if there was a possibility of a derailment as one unfortunately considers when traveling in third world.

The Kotoden train is a site you see wherever you go around Takamatsu. The station staff are great, always so tidy and professional, the platforms are clean, the cars are clean. It is easy to use, not expensive, and kind of cool. The trains rumble all over Kagawa. You can go downtown or you can ride all the way out to Kotohira (a must for visitors!) and then you can climb Konpira! Ooooohhhh.... Ahhhh... Anyway, Kotoden trains are smooth and easy to use.

As is typical in Japan the transport system is clean, reliable, punctual and this was no exception. Colourful trains; never thought I would be wanting to photograph trains before! Air conditioning.
