AWAJI / SHIKOKU

Shikoku Karst – Ehime and Kochi border.

 

We had a day off from WWOOFing so we came up to 1000m above sea level to some plains and mountaintops called shikoku karst. I have never heard of KARST but apparently its a thing. They seem a bit like Scotland or something. There are some cows and grass which there isn’t much of in Japan.

ヤギ

We paid 100yen to see the some goats and a horse on this farm. The goats were pretty fun.

四国カルスト

We walked along here and saw a tanuki. He poked his fuzzy face out from a rock. Very cute. I thought it was a badger at first, but there aren’t any of them in Japan so. Tanuki.
