  • 我們出了琴平站,在對面便有車直達大概山的三分或四分之一吧,我們是直衝上了奧社,真的,好一大段路,不斷看到梯級,走過一條又一條,途中還有小心野豬出沒的警示牌, 白峰神社以後還要走差不多四十五分鐘才能到達奧社!我們也很是佩服自己能走這麼遠,幸好少走了一段路,不然真的更辛苦!走到奧社,當然又許了願,希望能實現吧! 
  • 金刀比羅宮位於琴平町,由琴電站很容易找到大鳥居後就沿著表參道走就是。但此神宮位於山上,要爬極多級樓梯才可到達。年長者可考慮乘坐人力橋上落。 
  • 這是一間有歷史的古剎,延著階段往上,延途有一些特色商家,走累了中途有一間咖啡店喝杯咖啡休息一下,到了金刀比羅宮可以眺望遠方秀麗的景色,令人心曠神怡!
