Shikoku Is...

Shikoku is....Shikoku is the smallest of Japan’s four main islands but what it lacks in size it overcompensates for in natural beauty, geographical diversity, arts & culture, and most important of all, the warmth and openness of its people.

Shikoku is divided into four prefectures, each with unique attributes. Tying the entire island together, and perhaps what it’s best known for is the 88 Temple Pilgrimage or Ohenro. The island is also widely known for its diverse cuisine, natural hotsprings, mountains and valleys, thatched roof villages, vibrant festivals, and traditional arts.




Shikoku is also a convenient jumping off point for many islands and nearby destinations in and around the Seto Inland Sea. The art islands of Naoshima, Teshima, and Inujima; the beautiful olive island of Shodoshima; and the center of hotspring resorts, Awaji Island are all easily within reach. Equally accessible are Hiroshima, Kurashiki, Okayama, and Miyajima.

Finally, Shikoku is a destination unlike anywhere else in Japan. A step back in time to a simpler, more natural existence where farming and fishing still dominate and people work and play together within the community. Where it’s possible to find both physical and spiritual peace and rejuvenate your mind as well as your soul.

Shikoku is not to be missed.
