Shikoku

Kochi

Shikoku is the smallest and least populous of the four main islands of Japan located south of Honshu between the Seto Inland Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Shikoku consists of four regions: Kagawa, Tokushima, Ehime and Kochi. 
The island is famous for its multi-site 88-temple pilgrimage route known as Shikoku Ohenro, one of the oldest pilgrimages known to man. This 1,400 km long route was initiated in 815 by Kobo-Daishi (Kukai), founder of the Shingo Sect of Japanese Buddhism. To visit all the 88 temples on foot takes 45 days.

Kagawa

The Kagawa prefecture, Japan’s smallest prefecture, is situated on the north-east corner of Shikoku Island.
Kagawa is the birthplace of Kobo-Daishi (Kukai), founder of the Shingo Sect of Japanese Buddhism. Kagawa is also famous for its Sanuki Udon noodles (must-try!) and the calm water surface dotted with numerous small islands scattered on the inland Seto Sea.

Tokushima

The Tokushima prefecture in the eastern part of Shikoku is blessed with diversity of nature.

Ehime

Ehime Prefecture is situated in the northwestern part of Shikoku and is famous for being one of Japan’s oldest hot springs, Dogo onsen. It has magnificent views of the Inland Sea’s shore and the Seto Inland Sea National Park.

Kochi

Kochi prefecture is located south of Shikoku and is known as the birthplace of Sakamoto Ryoma who made a significant contribution to Japan's rapid modernization marking the end of the Edo period.
