So finally I hit the island that, it is fair to say, virtually all foreign tourists (and many Japanese) never visit. Famous for udon and an 88-temple pilgrimage, I found Shikoku a very welcoming, friendly, and country (inaka) place. Matsuyama is the biggest city, yet it is smaller than Nagasaki. It had a very relaxed and friendly feel though, somethign Shikoku(ians) are famous for.

  1. Torture implements, or weapons that entire armies could be armed with to tickle en masse? Always love discussing history when there are no experts to ruin the illusion!

    Love the photos, Nick! Keep them coming!
