Located southwest of Honshu is Shikoku, the second smallest main island of Japan. It consists of four prefectures: Tokushima, Kagawa, Ehime and Kochi, and remains as Japan’s secret destination. While many hidden gems yet to be discovered, Shikoku region covers a wide range of cultural, historical, spiritual, art and outdoor adventures. This includes the ‘88 Temple’ pilgrimage, Japan’s most famous dance festival, Naoshima Island, a modern art sanctuary, the charismatic bathhouse that inspired the Miyazaki’s film ‘Spirited Away’ and Naruto whirlpools. Being geographically isolated means Shikoku’s traditions and its scenic beauty has been very well preserved.
