Travelling to Shikoku

« on: August 11 2014 21:08:00 »

Hi there, I'm heading to Japan in September 2014 and trying to work out the best way to get around - any advice would be great! I'm starting in Okinawa and then may head to Shikoku, depending on how the swell is looking. But, I'm not sure what is the best way to travel around Shikoku - particularly, getting to Kaifu rivermouth.

Does anyone have any advice on how to travel from Okinawa to Kaifu? I was thinking of flying to Shikoku and then getting a car to drive to Kaifu and other spots in the area - but which airport is the best to fly in to - and also be able to get a rental car at - Takamatsu? Or should I fly back to Tokyo from Okinawa first, and then go from there?

Any advice would be great, thanks in advance!

Flying from Naha to one of Okayama, Takamatsu and Kobe looks like your fastest way to get to Kaifu, while Kobe offers you the most frequent flights. There are 4 flights per day (ANA, Solaseed, Skymark) from Naha to Kobe, whereas only one flight to either Okayama or Takamatsu (JAL and ANA, respectively).

From any of the three airports, I'd rent a car to get to Kaifu, as trains take at least 4 hours whereas a car'd take 2 and a half at the shortest. Remember that you as a visitor are required to have an International Driving Permit to drive in this country.
