Setouchi Inland Sea

Come on a journey of unusual and unique discovery with us, as we explore the islands of the Setouchi Inland Sea. Sandwiched between Shikoku and mainland Japan, this string of islands are well known among locals for their vast natural beauty, welcoming communities and a fast-growing contemporary art scene. This is a part of Japan that you won’t find on most itineraries but is well worth considering if you want to take your explorations off the beaten track and see life in rural Japan from a different point of view.
