Stop At: Tokushima Prefectural Museum, Hachimancho Mukoterayama Tokushimaken Bunka no Mori Sogo Park, Tokushima 770-8070 Tokushima Prefecture

The Tokushima Prefectural Art Museum is one of the best places to come in the city if you want to know more about the history and geology of this part of Shikoku.

The museum will take you back in time and will fill you in on how Tokushima got its start and you can also try a variety of interactive exhibits here that younger visitors are sure to enjoy.

It is also located in the same spot as the Tokushima Modern Art Museum so you can visit both at the same time.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bizan Park, Bizancho, Tokushima 770-0908 Tokushima Prefecture

If you want to take a day trip out of Tokushima then consider a visit to Mount Bizan which is on the outskirts of the city.

This mountain is known for its cherry trees which number over 1,500 and burst into bloom in the spring time.

To get to the top of the mountain you can take a ropeway which then affords you amazing views back over the city.

You can then walk back down the mountain to enjoy the scenery in Tokushima which is a relaxing hike that only takes around 20 minutes at most.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Tokushima Castle Museum, 1-8, Tokushimacho Jonai Tokushima Central Park, Tokushima 770-0851 Tokushima Prefecture

Tokushima Castle is located close to the wider Chuo Park and is made up of a museum and a large garden.

The castle museum is well worth a visit if you are in the area and you will be able to find out more about the history of the castle and see a range of antiques and exhibits that tell its story.

The garden is also a wonderful attraction in its own right and is said to have been created in the 16th century.

It is modeled on the traditional Japanese style which offers you a piece of calm in the otherwise busy city and you will find soothing streams and charming ponds here.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Tokushima Prefectural Awajurobe Yashiki, 184 Kawauchicho Miyajimahonura, Tokushima 771-0114 Tokushima Prefecture

Awa Jorbe Yashiki would have been the former home of Jurobe who was a famous samurai warrior in the days of old.

Now it has been turned into a puppet theater known as bunraku and is also a museum.

There are puppet performances held here throughout the week and this makes a great stop off if you are traveling with younger guests who will be enthralled by the colorful puppets.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Naruto Strait, Naruto 772-0000 Tokushima Prefecture

Naruto (鳴門) is the northeastern most city on Shikoku Island. Part of Tokushima Prefecture, Naruto is known for its swirling whirlpools. These can be seen in the Strait of Naruto underneath the Onaruto Bridge connecting Tokushima to Awaji Island.

Naruto is also the starting point of the Shikoku Pilgrimage, which leads around the island to visit 88 temples across Shikoku associated with the famous Buddhist monk, Kobo Daishi, the founder of Shingon Buddhism. Naruto's Ryozenji Temple is the first temple of the pilgrimage.
