The All Shikoku Rail Pass permits unlimited travel (for 3, 4, 5 or 7 consecutive days) on all JR Shikoku services (up to Kojima station on Honshu) as well as those provided by private rail companies (Kotoden, Iyotetsu, Tosaden, Tosa Kuroshio and Asato). The pass can be bought in Japan.

The passes can be bought in Japan but cost ¥500 more.

Prices are fixed in yen, but the charge is payable in local currency. The prices and conversion equivalents quoted here are those at the time of research for the 5th edition of Japan by Rail. However, the exact cost will depend on the exchange rate used at the time of purchase. It’s worth shopping around as agencies apply different exchange rates.

3-day  ¥9000  (£59/$78)

4-day      ¥10,000  (£66/$86)

5-day     ¥11,000 (£72/$95)

7-day    ¥13,000 (£86/$112)

Children aged 5 and under travel free providing they do not occupy a seat; those aged 6-11 pay half the adult rate.
