Journey to Shikoku: Ehime with the Japan America Society of Chicago

JETAA Chicago is excited to support the next series of events by the Japan America Society of Chicago - Journey to Shikoku: Ehime.

About the Event

Ehime Prefecture is located in the northwest region of Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s four main islands. It is full of beautiful nature, nestled between two seas—the Seto Island Sea and Uwa Sea—and the Shikoku Mountains. Known for its deep roots in traditional Japanese culture, Ehime also has some remarkably modern features interwoven with its historical ties. Only there will you be able to visit one of Japan’s oldest hot springs, Dogo Onsen, and bike on a world-class cycling route, the Shimanami Kaido. Join us to learn about this unique region of Japan!
