Top Reasons to Go to Shikoku
Get off the concrete: Discover Shikoku's natural charms by rafting, hiking, walking, and swimming. Best of all, bicycle across the Seto Inland Sea on a series of island-hopping bridges.
Get your hands dirty: Try a martial art, make soba noodles, dye fabrics, and learn a two-step in time for the summer dances.
Get down, get funky: Festivals mark every weekend between April and October leading up to the biggest dance festivals in the nation—Yosakoi and Awa Odori.
Get personal: Encounter Shikoku’s legendary hospitality first-hand.
Get real: Shikoku may well be the closest a tourist can get to "the real Japan," with its time-forgotten towns like Uchiko, unique landmarks like Dogo Onsen and Kompira-san, and acres of rice.
