Geographic features

 Located on the eastern edge of Shikoku Island, Tokushima is bordered by the Inland Sea and the Kii Channel in the North, and the Pacific Ocean in the South. Forests cover about 76% of the Prefecture, and the North and South geographic divide is punctuated by the central Shikoku Mountain Range. In a dramatic contrast to the South, where mountains stretch to the coast and there is little flat land, the flow of the Yoshino River sculpts the North into wedge-shaped plains.
