SpotShimanto

At 196 km in length, the Shimanto River is the longest river in Shikoku, running through the western part of Kochi Prefecture. It is also called "the last clear stream in Japan" because the river has no big dams on its trunk flow. The best views are found mainly around the middle part of the river, where the river flows at a leisurely pace in perfect harmony with the surrounding mountains and where you can see chinka-bashi bridges, bridges without parapets that sink under water when the water level rises (this to prevent their being washed away in floods). You can also enjoy canoeing or other activities on the river.
