Shikoku

Description

Shikoku, Sanrei Mountain

四国

This is the smallest of the four main islands of Japan. It is located in the south western part of the land, and hence enjoys a warm and moist climate.

A popular trekking here is the Shikoku 88 Temple Trail, largely coinciding with the Shikoku Nature Trail.
