    Ehime Matsuyama-shi Dogoyunomachi 15-23
    "An L-shaped shopping arcade which connects Dogo Onsen Station on the Iyotetsu Jonan Line and the Dogo Onsen Honkan. Having flourished as a temple market from the Meiji period, visitors can take in the ""Meiji romance"" atmosphere the arcade still exudes. The arcade is filled with establishments offering up the charms of Dogo Onsen, such as Shirasagido, a shop famous for its bocchan dango sweet dumplings; and the Dogo Bakushukan beer hall, where you can enjoy local Ehime alcoholic beverages. The arcade is dedicated to the concept of warm and welcoming hospitality, and there are around 60 shops here ready and waiting to give a friendly welcome to customers. The bustling arcade was also selected in 2017 as one of HABATAKU Shopping Districts 30 due to their contribution to the revitalization and development of local communities through supporting the lives of local residents."

    Ehime Pref. Kitagunuchikochou Uchiko 2214
    Omori Japanese Candle is a shop selling traditional Japanese wax candles, located in Uchiko Town, where the wax-making and Washi (traditional Japanese hand-made paper) industries flourished during the Edo and Meiji periods. A section of a wax candle made in the traditional way (which has been handed down for over 200 years) shows a ring-like pattern; with no coloring or decorative motifs, the candles have a simple beauty. These are long-lasting candles that produce little soot and don’t suffer from dripping wax. The candles have attracted a great deal of interest in other countries, and are featured on the website of the British Museum. Omori Japanese Candle is located around 15 minutes’ walk from Uchiko Station.

    Although I had earmarked the Candle Shop for a visit prior to arriving in Uchiko, I must have passed-by the unassuming entrance to the shop several times before I realised that the paper lantern with...
