    Travel / Tourism
    Uwajima-shi Ehime Prefecture - Matsuno cho
    The 12 kilometer long Nametoko Ravine lies in the upper course of the Meguro River branch of the Shimanto River. This ravine is abundant with scenic views including the Senjojiki rock and the Yukiwa Falls, selected as one of the top 100 national waterfalls. Also known for its autumn foliage, the ravine covered in bright red and yellow flora is a marvelous sight to see.
  • Namegawa Gorge
    Travel / Tourism
    Ehime Pref. Touonshi Myouga
    This hinterlands valley is around 8 kilometers from the famous cherry-blossom viewing area, Sakura-Sanri, along National Route 11. Come experience the mysteries of nature in this valley and see the Namera, a river bed made from one large spacious rock that stretches almost a kilometer in length, as well as potholes formed by smaller stones caught in the whirlpools cutting into the larger boulders. A popular spot in the spring when the new verdant green leaves emerge and during the summer as a cool place to escape the heat. With amazing autumn colors in the fall and icicles stretching longer than two meters in the winter, there's something to enjoy here year-round. This valley with its mysterious rockface formed over countless years has certainly earned its reputation as a secluded natural power spot (spiritual place with energy vortex).
  • Omogo Gorge
    Travel / Tourism
    Ehime Pref. Kamiukenagunkumakougenchou Wakayama
    "This gorge spreads out near the foot of Mt. Ishizuchi upstream on the Niyodo River in Kochi Prefecture where the clear blue ""Niyodo blue"" has gained attention. The river that flows there is very clear, and you can see all the way to the riverbed. There are two main promenades, the main route connecting sights such as Goshiki-gawara Riverbed, Momiji-gawara Riverbed and Torigataki Falls, and the Teppo route along the quiet Teppo River. The surrounding forest has also been selected as one of the Top 100 Forested Water by the Forestry Agency, and is also known as a nationally designated scenic spot. How it looks changes in various ways depending on the season, and it is also popular as a spot for seeing colorful leaves in the autumn."

Ehime Main Areas


Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
