The Yoshino River

The Yoshino River, also known as Shikoku Saburou, ranks as one of Japan's three greatest rivers. Originating in the Kamega Forest on the border between Kochi and Ehime Prefectures in Central Shikoku, the river runs through eastern Tokushima Prefecture and out into the Kii Channel. Some 194km in length, the Yoshino River is a symbol of Tokushima, and the view of the 1.3km wide river mouth is sure to leave an impression.
