Japan travel guide

Japan - Shikoku (Chapter)

14th Edition Sep 2015

This is the Shikoku chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.

Shikoku is synonymous with natural beauty and the pursuit of spiritual perfection. It’s home to the 88 Temple route, Japan’s most famous pilgrimage, even if some henro (pilgrims) today bus it rather than hoof it. But Shikoku is not just for the seeker of enlightenment - the island’s stunning Iya Valley, rugged Pacific coastline, gorgeous free-flowing rivers and mountain ranges all beckon to be explored.

  • soaking in the waters of historic Dōgo Onsen in the castle-town metropolis of Matsuyama
  • maps
  • finding seclusion, if not enlightenment, like Kōbō Daishi did at Muroto-misaki
  • transport
  • walking off Japan’s most famous udon with a stroll through Takamatsu’s exquisite Edo-period garden, Ritsurinkōen
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Tokushima Prefecture, Tokushima & around, Iya Valley, Tsurugi-san, Southern Tokushima Prefecture, Hiwasa, South to Muroto-misaki, Kōchi Prefecture, Tokushima & around, Kōchi & around, Ashizuri-misaki & around, Shimanto City, Ashizuri-misaki, Ehime Prefecture, Uwajim & around, Matsuyama & around, Ishizuchi-san, Kagawa Prefecture, and Takamatsu & around.
