  • Getting to Naruto

    Naruto Transportation

    To get to Naruto by train you must travel from within Shikoku, because there are no trains connecting Tokushima Prefecture to the mainland, so if you are in Honshu, you can take a train from Okayama to Shikoku. Naruto is accessed from the Naruto Line, so from Takamatsu or Kochi you can take a train to Ikenotani Station and transfer to the Naruto...

    Hiwasa Things to Do

    The Sea Turtle Museum is an aquarium composed of four rooms and some outdoor tanks which hold live sea turtles. Various exhibits display different species of sea turtle, both live and taxidermed. There is a small area for children to color in pictures of turtles, an overlook onto the beach where they lay their eggs, and some demonstrations to help...

  • Visit Yakuoji Shrine

    Hiwasa Things to Do

    Many Japanese know Hiwasa because of the Yakuoji temple, one of the 88 shrines of the pilgrimage. We visited this shrine on New Year's Day and it was quite crowded. You walk up several long flights of steps, leaving a one yen coin on each, then approach the main temple to worship. The temple really is an active center of worship, with several idols...

  • Seafood by the sea

    Hiwasa Restaurants

    My mother in law chose this monstrosity as part of a longstanding preference in Hiwasa. Although the exterior is really cheesy, the food was great and extremly fresh. In the rear they have tanks of water filled with shellfish. As people order, the guy in the back reaches into the tank and selects the shrimp, scallpps, sea urchins etc. , opens the...

    Miyoshi Things to Do

    Oboke Gorge (Oboke-kyo) is a gorge created by the Yoshino River. It is one of the scenic areas of the Iya Valley. It is one of the most popular places in the area because you can go whitewater rafting here (you need to make your reservations with a rafting company; each has its own rates and offers).For those that want a better look at the gorge,...

  • Iya Soba

    Miyoshi Restaurants

    Not to be confused with the nearby Mannaka Hotel, the Oboke-kyo Mannaka Restaurant serves traditional dishes, including the local specialty, Iya soba. If you just get the soba, it is less than 500 yen, but the set meals are also very reasonable. The soba is very good, although I'm not sure what makes Iya soba unique, because the visible items are...

  • Getting to Iya Valley and Oboke

    Miyoshi Transportation

    Oboke Station provides access to the Iya Valley and Oboke. It is located along the JR Dosan Line, so there are trains that come here directly from Kochi and Takamatsu. Some Limited Express Trains also come here directly from Okayama but on those that don't, you can transfer once you reach Shikoku in Sakaide or Takamatsu. If traveling from...
