Surfing in Tokushima!

Tokushima has many surfing spots, such as Naruto City, the northern part of Tokushima City, and the southern part from Anan City to Kaiyo Town - all of which can be enjoyed by both beginners and advanced surfers. Tokushima Prefecture has produced many professional surfers and is sometimes called "Awa no Kuni, the surfing capital of Japan" (Awa is the former name of Tokushima, and "Kuni" means country). In particular, the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture and the eastern part of Kochi Prefecture are the best surfing areas in Shikoku.
