JAPAN by Japan​


Driving route that touches the sky Shikoku KarstDriving route that touches the sky Shikoku Karst

Enjoy breezing through a famous driving course in the magical landscape of Shikoku Karst. At an average elevation of 1,400m, the plateau offers grand panoramas of sweeping grasslands scattered with white limestone mounds and sinkholes - geological formations caused by centuries of erosion - and the Atlantic Ocean. Take in the landscape as it transforms with the seasons along its 25-kilometre length.

Best way to see
As one of the most popular driving routes in Japan, the best way to enjoy Shikoku Karst is to rent a car. Spring to autumn are the best seasons, since in winter the road may be covered in snow.
