Shikoku

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Shikoku

Spiritual Island

The smallest of Japan's four main islands, Shikoku remains one of the country's forgotten tourist destinations, still considered little more than a rural backwater. Despite this reputation, the island boasts numerous notable temples and outstanding hiking areas, sure to satisfy nature lovers and those looking to add a bit of culture to their visit. Shikoku tourism gets a boost from its famed "88 Temple Route," appealing to pilgrims seeking spiritual perfection, as well as pristine natural scenery of picturesque rivers and majestic mountains. Thanks to the area's rugged but easily accessible wilderness, some of the most popular things to do in Shikoku include hiking, kayaking, surfing, climbing, and sailing. Shikoku is in Japan. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Shikoku trip itinerary using our Japan trip planner .
