SHIKOKU

SHIKOKU

Bounded to the west by the Seto Inland Sea and to the east by the Pacific Ocean, Shikoku is the smallest of Japan’s four main islands. But what it lacks in size Shikoku makes up for with abundant scenic beauty, culinary delights, and opportunities for relaxation, drawing travelers back again and again. The island is full of fascinating destinations and activities, beginning with Shikoku’s famous 1,200 kilometer-long, 88-temple pilgrimage route. Other points of interest include Matsuyama Castle, historic Dogo Onsen, and the natural splendors of Katsura Beach, Iya Gorge, and the Suzaki Coast. JTBGMT has a long history of organizing Shikoku itineraries for overseas tourists. We can even arrange excursions to any of the many smaller nearby islands and other regional destinations in the Seto Inland Sea area.
