Narazaki1 tells us that “The pines along the coast of the Inland sea stand out for their forms, which have been shaped by the strong sea winds.  A daring composition.”  Sanuki province corresponds to present-day Kagawa prefecture.

Sanuki province corresponds to present-day Kagawa prefecture.  Kagawa prefecture lies along the Seto
Inland Sea.  The Seto Inland Sea is beautiful place with reputation of "white beach with green pine forest", and occupies the great position as recreation places in Japan.
