Shikoku(四国) is the smallest island of the four main islands (Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu) of Japan. There are four prefectures located there: Tokushima, Kagawa, Ehime, and Kochi. Shikoku’s must visit spots are Dogo Hot springs, Naoshima, Naruto Whirlpool, and Iya valley. Although Shikoku is the smallest island, it takes time to travel to different places.
