Need to social distance on a stinking hot day ? Go buy a motorbike.
400 kilometres of riding through the mountain roads of Shikoku, two swims, one feed and poo in the bush equates to a pretty successful day.
Apparently, bears are not extinct in Shikoku.
Nagoro “Scarecrow” Village
There are tons of blogs and endless videos on this place. My take is simple and blunt. As a destination “No”, As a pitstop “Why not”.
Mt.Tsurugi is an accessible mountain with spectator views, I highly recommend taking the lift and walking the longer easier route to enjoy those views.
