Unlimited bus rides within Shikoku for 4, 5, or 7 whole days!
This pass can be used an unlimited number of times for any of the following 7 bus routes during its validity period.
This pass is designed to resemble the travel passes that were handed out to travelers during the Edo period (1603-1868). Back then, people could only travel outside of their home areas if they received special permission from their local lord. Much like the passports of today, travelers had to show their passes on their journey and at their destinations.
Please get the most out of your pass by enjoying your travels, and seeing as much of beautiful Shikoku as you can!
Your first destination is Kagawa, where you can enjoy traditional Japanese noodles known as Sanuki Udon. Kagawa is so well known for Udon, it it sometimes called the "Udon Prefecture". There are many types of udon, with the most common being "kake udon" and "bukkake udon". Each udon shop has its own unique flavor and history, so no two bowls of udon are ever the same. Many shops also have "Omiyage" (souvenir) udon so you can take the delicious noodles home to share with friends and family.

Experience Awa Odori in Tokushima.
Awa Odori is the third largest Bon Odori celebration in Japan with over 400 years of history. This colorful and spectacular traditional folk dance celebration takes place every summer, drawing over a million visitors to Tokushima if only for a short time to see the thousands of dancers perform.
Even if you miss the festival, you can still enjoy “Awa Odori Hall”, a museum dedicated to the festival located in Tokushima City.

In Ehime, you can relax at Japan`s oldest hot spring resort, Dogo Onsen.
The Main Building of Dogo Onsen is a wooden structure that was built before World War II, and has come to symbolize the downtown area of Matsuyama City. There are four different bathing experiences available, some including a tea and sweets course as well as a chance to relax in traditional Japanese Yukata (casual Kimono).
Once you arrive in Kochi, your first stop should be Kochi Castle, the most famous castle along the southern seas. Today, the castle has been designated an Important Cultural Property by the Japanese government. The structures built during the feudal era have survived through 400 years of tumultuous history.
Climb to the top and experience what it would have been like for a Tono-sama (feudal lord), enjoying a panoramic view of Kochi from on high!
