But the lack of foreign tourists compared to the main island Honshu creates a distinct old time charm that can be appreciated by those looking to visit another side of Japan. Shikoku consists of four prefectures — Ehime, Kagawa, Tokushima, and Kochi, and this six-day plan will bring you across the first three prefectures.
