Shikoku Karst (四国カルスト)
Shikoku Karst is a scenic spot noted as being one of the three largest karsts (geological feature) in Japan. The karst stretches for about 25 kilometers east to west and sits at a height of 1,000 to 1,500 meters above sea level. The Shikoku Karst is also the source of the Shimanto River, said to be the last clear stream in Japan on account of there not being any dams on the river. The sight of the Tosa Red cows grazing on the land is both tranquil and beautiful.
