With mild, pleasant weather year-round and a gorgeous natural environment to explore, it’s no wonder this area is an attractive one for tourists planning a trip around Japan.

This area is situated in northwestern Shikoku, bordered by the Seto Inland Sea.

There are plenty of hotels and hostels located in the prefecture’s capital city, Matsuyama. Visitors here can stay at an inexpensive hostel while they explore everything this area has to offer, or they can choose from a number of other types of accommodation – anything from elegant hotels, spa resorts, bed and breakfasts, and holiday rentals.

Tourists shouldn’t leave this area without sampling some of the delicious local cuisine. Traditional Japanese foods like horaku yaki, tai somen, imotaki, iyo satsuma, and imabari ramen are only some of the unique dishes visitors can expect to find at the many restaurants found within Ehime. The area is known for its production of goshiki somen, thin noodles that come in five different colours thanks to natural dyes like tea, plums, and wheat. Other local exports include pottery, textiles, and even microbrewed beers.

International flights arrive into Ehime Matsuyama Airport via connections in either Seoul or Shanghai, and shuttles are available from the airport to bring tourists to their local accommodation.
