SHIKOKU

Shikoku is smallest of Japan's Big 4 islands and is located to the south of Honshu.

Shikoku is a fairly rural area and features a mountain range running roughly east west down the island. Shikoku faces the Inland Sea on the northern side and the Pacific Ocean on the southern side. Shikoku is famous for its 88 temple Pilgrimage and the Awa-odori festive held in August every year.

SHIKOKU ACCESS

By plane
Prefectural capitals Takamatsu, Matsuyama, Kochi and Tokushima all have small regional airports.

By train
Trains connect to Shikoku from Okayama on Honshu to Takamatsu. Connections can then be made via train or bus to other locations throughout Shikoku.

By bus
Bus is often the best form of access from Kansai or eastern parts of Japan. Buses travel through Awaji Island and across the famous Naruto Bridge.
