KagawaMt. Iinoyama

Overview

Mount Iinoyama is the quintessential “rice ball mountain,” a type of mountain so named for its resemblance to hand-formed rice balls which are a popular snack in Japan. Mount Iinoyama is also known as “the Mount Fuji of Sanuki,” and true to this name, the gentle contours of its base recall that of Japan’s most famous mountain. This mini Mount Fuji stands 422m (1,385ft) tall, and in the spring its base is surrounded by a carpet of peach blossoms. From its peak, one can see many other “rice ball mountains” spread across the Sanuki Plains, as well as the blue of the Seto Inland Sea.
