Rest Spot Spots in Matsuyama Area

  • Roadside Station Kazahaya no Sato Fuwari
    Travel / Tourism
    Ehime Pref. Matsuyamashi Oura 119
    This roadside station has a glamorous location facing the islands of the Seto Inland Sea on one side with the sacred Mt. Takanawa behind it. With the theme of a town where you can feel the climate, region, and nature all wrapped in a gentle sea breeze it was given the name Fuwari (made from the Japanese characters for wind, peace, and village). As the name implies at this scenic roadside station you can buy vegetables freshly picked each morning alongside seafood, processed goods, and handmade staple dishes. There's also a food corner where you can enjoy a snack such as ice cream or jakoten (fish paste fritters), making this the perfect place to take a break during a drive. During the summer months the beach will be filled with beach-goers.

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.
