ジャンボフェリーからことでん From Jumbo Ferry by tarin


When you arrive at Takamatsu East Port 高松東港 by Jumbo Ferry, at first, take a free shuttle bus bound for JR Takamatsu Station 高松駅. The bus runs only once after the arrival of the ferry. In case you miss it, you’ll have to walk for 45 minutes or take a taxi to Wakabaya.

Free KAGAWA-WiFi is available at Takamatsu East Port, the bus terminal, and Kotoden Takamatsu Chikko Station.

You’ll arrive at Takamatsu Station Bus Terminal in about 10 minutes. Walk forward shortly and you’ll find an artificial pond on your left.

Turn left at the pond and cross over the square. Note that a station on your right side is NOT Kotoden Takamatsu Chikko Station 高松築港駅 but JR Takamatsu Station 高松駅.

When you find a roofed passage, walk along it up to the crosswalk.

Go straight on the crossing and you’ll see the stone wall of the Takamatsu Castle.

Turn to the right. Kotoden Takamatsu Chikko 高松築港 Station will appear on your left side soon.

Prepaid transportation cards (IC Cards) such as Suica and ICOCA are available on the Kotoden train. If you don’t have it, buy a 200 JPY ticket to Hanazono Station on the Nagao Line at the ticket vending machine. Take the green train bound for Nagao from platform 3.

When you get off the train, the IC Card holder touches the card onto the yellow card reader at the platform before you go out. If you have a paper ticket, please give it to the train conductor.

Get off at Hanazono Station 花園駅, the next station after Kawaramachi Station. Go through the bicycle parking lot and turn right.

Continue straight on at the crossroads with the traffic light and cross the bridge.
Immediately after crossing the bridge, there is another signal. It is a crossroads with the sign of Daté Hospital 伊達病院 and Noguchi Udon Shop 野口製麺. Turn left there. If you go too far, you’ll see an elevated railway.

When you pass in front of Daté Hospital 伊達病院, you will soon reach Wakabaya.

Shortly after the Hospital, you will find Wakabaya with a signboard on your right. Welcome!
