Locating at the southern tip of Okayama prefecture, Chukoku Japan, Kojima is the last stop along the JR line before you cross the famous Seto Inland Sea and go to Shikoku Japan. In addition to the popular jeans street, Betty Smith Jeans Museum, you may also get a great view of Seto Inland Sea from Mount Washuzan.
Seto Inland Sea (Setouchi) is the water separating Honshū, Shikoku, and Kyūshū, three of the four main islands of Japan. It is the largest inland sea in Japan, surrounded by Hyogo, Okayama, Hiroshima, Yamaguchi, Tokushima, Kagawa, and Ehime prefectures. There are about 700 large and small islands in Setouchi. The Setouchi region is known for its moderate climate, relatively warm and sunny compared to the rest of Japan. The coastal area of the Seto Inland Sea was appointed the Setonaikai National Park (瀬戸内海国立公園) in 1934, one of the oldest National Park in Japan. In 1980s, 3 bridges were constructed to connect Shikoku with Honshu, making it easy to travel around Setouchi Area. Besides, the Setouchi Triennale Art Festival has boosted even more international and local travellers visiting the area.
