    A popular pastry shop and café located on Hakata-jima Island in Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture frequented by fans from both within and outside the prefecture.

Popular confections include the shop’s signature short cake; eclairs; and cakes made with an abundance of strawberries, peaches, and other seasonal fruits. The shop has an eat-in space in the back with a view of the ocean where you can enjoy original blend coffee and light meals in addition to sweets. The croque-monsieur is a particularly popular lunch choice.

    Ehime Pref. Matsuyamashi Sambanchou 3-5-4
    You’ll find this longstanding local restaurant in Sanban Town, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture. It opened during the Kanei period. Enjoy some traditional Ehime cuisine amid the subdued, authentic Japanese ambiance, such as sea bream somen noodles, sea bream rice, jakoten (a kind of fried kamaboko), and more. The sea bream somen noodles are the restaurant’s signature dish. They come with a whole small sea bream on top and feature “five-color somen,” which is a favorite in Matsuyama. There are also plenty of fish from the Seto Inland Sea and local vegetables and meat dishes that go well with local Ehime sake.

    Just like DC, long on reputation short on deliverable. Food is good but boring. The rainbow noodles a real yawner. You need a magnifying glass to find the bream in the signature dish. Go hit the...

    This confectionery opened in 1931 in Okaido, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, and its most well-known product is its famous “Roken manto” sweet buns. They were originally created at the Institute for Labor Science in Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture by adapting sweet buns from China to Japanese tastes, and in Matsuyama during the early Showa period, they were produced and sold to raise money for night school expenses as well as for meals. Their steamed bread has garnered many fans over the years for its simple taste, soft texture, and mild sweetness created using the same yeast that was being used when the store opened. There are many other varieties as well, such as black soybean, pinto bean, mugwort, strained bean paste, and more, and frozen sets are sold as well. Note: Currently closed.

    This restaurant, directly supplied by a fishmonger, is located very near to the Dogo Onsen Honkan in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture and is recognizable by its cute mural of tanuki racoon dogs. All tables inside are sunken kotatsu (heated tables) and there is a calm atmosphere. The local cuisine using seasonal seafood from the Seto Inland Sea is popular; it includes the Uwajima-style sea bream rice, a local specialty. Popular dishes are the local cuisine set lunch which has limited availability of carefully-selected, reasonably-priced seafood and the kamameshi rice pot set.

    A good choice if you need a restaurant with an English menu that is open reasonably late ( last order 9:30) near Dogo Onsen. The food can be hit or miss. But the sea bream steamed in sake ( as long...

    Hinode located about three minutes’ walk from Mitsu Station on Iyo Railway Takahama Line is a specialty Mitsuhamayaki restaurant which has been loved by locals for over a half century since its establishment. Mitsuhamayaki in which a dough using flour dissolved in water is fried on an iron plate and topped with ingredients such as spring onion, cabbage and soba noodles is a local soul food, and it can be eaten not only as a meal but also as a snack. It is superb as the sweet, spicy sauce, springy base, texture and the umami taste of the ingredients go well together. Sobadaitsuki nikudamaabura (Japanese pancake topped with meat and beef fat on soba noodles as a base) is the most popular menu item. The small restaurant has only counter seating, and takeaway is also available.

    港の近くにあり昔ながらの雰囲気のあるお好み焼き屋さん。 カウンターでおじさんが淡々と三津浜焼きを焼き上げてくれます。三津浜焼きの中に入れる麺はカウンターの下で茹でてからソースに絡めてお好み焼きに!牛脂で焼き上げているのですが甘みと味に深みがあり衝撃的で、とっても美味しかったです!焼きそばも◎ また寄ってみたいです!

    This restaurant serving local cuisine is located close to Dogo Onsen Honkan in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture. Customers can savor typical local cuisine centering around seafood from the Seto Inland Sea as well as plenty of Iyo meat and vegetables.
