Soar through the Setouchi seas and skies 4 nights 5 days tour

The Seto Inland Sea, which stretches between Honshu and Shikoku, is dotted with islands big and small. The scenery of this Setouchi area, with its islands afloat on flat, tranquil waters, makes for such a stunning sight that it has earned itself the nickname ‘the world’s gemstone.’

Now Setouchi Seaplanes are offering visitors to the area pleasure flights over the sea, giving a unique view of that exquisite island-dotted landscape from the air. Because the Seaplanes also function on land and water, they can offer the totally unforgettable experience of taking off from the water straight into the air.

The Setouchi region is not only gifted with stunning natural resources, but is its islands are full of character, and with their historical ruins, architecture and many instances of old villages that have survived into the present, make a great place to visit. A trip to Setouchi offers a luxurious and utterly out of the ordinary experience, where you can savour a slower pace of living and feel history surrounding you.
