Shimanto-shi Apartments for Rent

Although Shimanto-shi was only established in 2005 after the merger of the cities of Nakamura and Nishitosa, the region has a long history dating back to the Kofun and Nara periods. Today the city is most well-known for its breathtaking scenery and affinity for nature, seen through its dominant economic industries of agriculture, forestry, and commercial fishing.

The city itself is also widely spread out with population centers divided by both the Shimanto and Ushirogawa Rivers that run through the city, and various mountains and hills that dominate the landscape. If you are looking to settle or move to a city that embraces the wild beauty of nature, Shimanto-shi might just be the place you’ve been looking for.

Due to the Shimanto River cutting through most of the city, many activities and social events in Shimanto-shi revolve around enjoying the natural beauty of this naturally clear-flowing waterway. Take a walk down to the river from your apartment and enjoy a leisurely bike ride along its shores, or simply sit by the riverside and soak up its natural beauty. There are also several bridges and low-water crossings located along the river that are ideal landmarks for a longer bicycle or running excursion including the Submersible Bridge of Sada, Kachima Chinka Bridge, and Takase Submersible Bridge.

Nature buffs who want to enjoy more of the scenic Shikoku prefecture can follow the Shimanto River northwards and spend a night or two in camping grounds, onsen bathhouses, and small inns along the river banks. The Yodo line operated by the JR Shikoku company mostly runs adjacent to the inland Shimanto River as well, giving you ample opportunities to explore more of the Kochi and Ehime prefectures.

*Dependent on the credit check results and contract details, a deposit may be required.
