Travel from Shikoku to Honshu with a Japan Rail Pass

The Shiokaze Limited Express runs direct from Matsuyama to Okayama and is covered with the Japan Rail Pass.

0 km - Matsuyama station

50 km - 0h35 - Imabari station

From Imabari a road bridge connects Shikoku with Honshu. You can also join Onomichi with a bike along the Shimanami Kaido. The city is home to a large cotton processing industry and is particularly well-known for its towels.

80 km - 1H - Iyo Saijo Station

Right outside the station is the Shikoku Railway Culture Museum. You can view past trains including the first generation shinkansen. The inventor is from Shikoku. The Asahi Brewery is also another great place to visit. There are shuttle buses that run from Iyo-Saijo Station to the brewery.




162 km - 1H55 -  Tadotsu station

This is the junction between the Yosan Line, from Matsuyama to Takamatsu and the Dosan Line to Kochi. Here a rapid uncoupling of the train takes places, allowing the front carriages (4-8) to continue to Okayama, whilst the others head for Takamatsu. 

166 km - 2H - Marugame station

A city worth a stop-over. You will find the tourist information center just to the right as you leave the south exit (Mon-Fri, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sat-Sun, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m). Also, just outside the station is the Marugame Genichiro Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art (MIMOCA).
