Although the incredibly un-biased people at AJET think that Ehime is the best prefecture, Japan is blessed with so many wonderful places, sights, festivals, food and activities worth experiencing. But first you need to get out of Ehime – here`s how.

By bus

Buses are often the cheapest ways to travel between major cities of Japan. Bus travel is available to all prefectures in Shikoku and to several different destinations on Honshu.

By train

Make use of one of the best railway networks in the world! Although trains are generally more expensive for trips around and out of Shikoku, they can also offer you more flexibility.

By ferry

Ferries aren’t just for traveling between the islands in Ehime. Overnight and other long-distance ferries are inexpensive ways to get to Honshu or Kyushu

By air

Serviced by 5 different airlines, travelling via Matsuyama airport and can offer some great deals … if you plan ahead.
