Shikoku Kankou 2014/2/10 08:22
My wife & I are planning a 2-3 day vacation to Shikoku in May. We are looking for infomation on places to stay. My wife believes her roots are in Shikoku somewhere near the Hosoki Zuido (Hosoki Canal) The name may have been changed, but we would like to try to find it, if possible. Also would like information on tiur busses and business hotels. Lastly is there an e-mail address for the Shikoku Kankou (sp). Thank you for any assistance that you may provide.

Hosoki Canal is on the western coast of Shikoku. The nearest sizeable town is Uwajima in Ehime Prefecture.
