Shikoku – Fun, Comfortable, Delicious Food & Beautiful Landscapes
Most first-time visitors to Japan stick to a predictable course on the main island of Honshu, which takes them to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hiroshima. But for people who have visited Japan already, there’s much more to be discovered, and Shikoku represents a whole new field of exploration.
Shikoku lies in the southwestern part of Japan, south of the main island of Honshu. While Shikoku is the smallest of Japan’s four main islands, small is relative. The island has an area of 18,800 km², and due to its mountainous interior, charmingly odd shape and basic infrastructure, Shikoku packs a big natural and cultural punch. It boasts picturesque coastline on the glittering Seto Inland Sea, legendary udon noodles, movie-inspiring onsen, the first step on the 88 Temple Pilgrimage and a summer stage for Japan to dance.
If you’re looking to delve into a more traditional Japan, it’s time to let Japan Holidays help you explore vibrant Shikoku.
