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.

          Ehime Main Areas


          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
