Shikoku Island

Relatively undiscovered, Shikoku lets you enjoy seasonal colours in peace and tranquillity. It is a place for natural exploration and religious understanding as it is home to the 88 temples of the famous Buddhist pilgrimage of Shikoku. The dramatic mountain scenery of the Iya Valley, beautiful coastlines and towering gorges beckon to be explored on foot.


The soaring gorges and lofty mountains of the Iya Valley are the perfect place to immerse yourself in natural beauty; make the most of it on a hike. Relax with a dip in one of Japan’s famous hot springs (onsen) and then while the evening hours away eating local Udon noodles. Shikoku is the perfect place to hike, canoe and climb in a remote and wild environment, including a nature trail that ambles alongside the Nametoko Canyon’s crystal clear river. This little island is our top choice in Japan for travellers who like to explore the untrodden.
