How much of Japan can you fit into one week?
Try two days in Tokyo and the rest in Shikoku, a part of Japan that many foreign travellers are only just starting to discover. Arrive in Tokyo and fly to the Kansai region to start the journey across the Akaski Bridge and stop to view the Naruto whirlpools.
Discover how to make udon noodles in Tokushima and discover the joys of bathing naked in front of very-much-at-home Japanese locals at the famous hot spring Dogo Onsen at Matsuyama.
We climbed to the top of ancient castles, rode bicycles over suspension bridges, followed a pilgrim's temple trail, walked through beautiful gardens, boated through canyons, ate the best Japanese food I've experienced, travelled on the bullet train to Tokyo and visited an owl cafe.
Here's what we got up to in seven days in Japan.
