A god of the sea known as "Konpira-san of Sanuki" from long ago. From the shrine road entrance, there are 785 stone steps to the main shrine and 1,368 stone steps to the rear shrine. There are many historical sites and cultural properties on the road leading up to shrine.
A road to the rear of the shrine has vegetation that changes with the seasons, such as cherry blossoms in the spring, azaleas in the early summer, and red foliage in the autumn. Here, the eternal flow of time flows unchanged, gently into the future.
The area nearby is dotted from Important Cultural Properties, such as the Konpira Grand Theatre (Kanamaru-za) and a tall lantern tower. In addition, the town itself, with its retro Showa townscape, exudes a nostalgic atmosphere.
