Do you recognize this bridge? The Tsunoshima Bridge is on a lot of lists of spectacular bridges in Japan and the world, and it did look quite magnificent in real life! Plus the water around Tsunoshima looked so turquoise and inviting, even in autumn 🍁🏖️ #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

Peering through the trees at a Japanese teahouse perched above a river. This is the wonderful mountain villa called Garyu Sanso in Ozu in the Ehime region. The villa and garden are beautifully-landscaped and have been maintained like this for more than 100 years. #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

In the Japanese city of Matsuyama, you'll find Dogo Onsen - the oldest onsen in the country. It's in a historic building that even has a separate entrance and bath for the emperor and his family. After you've been in the hot springs, there are rooms like this to relax and have some tea. Not a bad way to spend an autumn morning... #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

This is Ishite-ji Temple in the Japanese city of Matsuyama. It is part of a pilgrimage route around the island of Shikoku, where pilgrims walk to 88 temples. Ishite is number 51. The walk takes about 5 or 6 weeks in total - and I can imagine it's absolutely stunning, based on what I've seen of this part of Japan. I'm considering coming back and doing it one day. What do you think? #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

Shout out to this guy in the small Japanese town of Ozu who gave me a fresh orange to welcome me! The region of Ehime on Shikoku Island is famous for its 'mikan' oranges and you'll find them everywhere. Ehime's mascot is even a super cute version of an orange! #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

Wandering the historic streets of the charming town of Uchiko. It's in the Ehime region of Shikoku Island and flourished from the 1720s until the 1930s as Japan's main wax-making site. #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

I haven't been to Japan in autumn before - but I already love these red and orange colours almost as much as I love the spring blossoms. They bring so much vibrancy to Matsuyama Castle, one of the 12 remaining castles from the Edo Period. It's in the Ehime region of Shikoku, which I'm visiting for a few days. #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

You might not think that a street that sells kitchenware would be very interesting but, in reality, a look at the weird and wacky things for sale is a fascinating insight into Japanese culture. There's the store selling only chopsticks where you could spend hundreds of dollars for just one set; the knives that are handmade by the same people who craft samurai swords; and the shops selling these plastic replicas of dishes that you see outside restaurants. #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO

I'm back in Japan for a short trip - and what glorious autumn weather! First stop is Tokyo and I've popped into the Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa. For 100 yen ($1) you can get your fortune told. I've been told there's lots of bad luck on the horizon. But if I get to eat lots of ramen and sushi train, then I won't believe it! #japan #travel #CHUGOKU_SHIKOKUxTOKYO
