This tour takes in all four prefectures of Shikoku in five days, visiting the most well-known sights. You might imagine that the popular places will be crowded, but Shikoku is a big place and even the famous spots can be enjoyed in peace and quiet.
You visit castles, gardens, temples, and shrines. You get to commune with nature, and eat fresh produce in local markets. There are opportunities for learning and hands-on experiences in museums and workshops.
We stay in a variety of accommodation, including onsen ryokan and modern hotels. Each of the prefectures has its own culinary culture, and you can enjoy a range of different food and sake. You can read more about the Shikoku food in our blog post, A Guide to Shikoku Cuisine. For sake, see Shikoku Sake.
Who is this tour for?
This tour is for those who like to travel with a guide and a small group of like-minded people. It’s for people who want to find out what Shikoku is all about without spending a full week doing so. The tour makes a good introduction to Shikoku (and Japan for that matter). Some of the attractions can only be accessed by walking up steep slopes or steps, so you’ll need to be reasonably fit. The onsen ryokan accommodation has ensuite toilets and baths, but if you want to use the public baths, you need to be OK with getting naked with strangers.
