    This neighborhood in the Kawanoishi District of Honai-cho, Yawatahama City retains many well preserved buildings from the Meiji to early Showa periods.

Others include the Shiraishi Wataro Yokan, an example of Giyofu (quasi-western) architecture, as well as the Ehime Sanshu building, a National Tangible Cultural Property.

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.
