5 Nights/6 Days Shikoku Tour

5 Nights/6 Days Shikoku Tour


This tour offers travelers a six-day journey of exploration across each of the four prefectures of Shikoku. With the convenience of a private car, guests will be able to experience so much of what this place we call Shikoku can offer.

From the calm azure waters of the Setō Inland Sea, to the seemingly endless natural beauty of the Iya Valley there is something to uncover: the graceful aesthetic of classical gardens, regional cuisine with deep ties to local communities, the relaxing waters of an ancient onsen, and the sprawling view from atop castles that have withstood the test of time, there always seems to be something to discover while here on Shikoku.
