Reviewed:2019/11/23 見応えある闘牛を、気軽に。
開催日は限られていますので事前に調べてから行く必要があります。宇和島の中心部からはバスでアクセスすることができます。飲食自由、撮影自由で、試合前後に牛を見学することもできます。迫力ある試合を間近で眺められるので、日程が合えば絶対に行くべきです。事前にネットでチケットを買うと500円引きになりお得です。
ただ、残念なことに地元の方のマナーが極めて悪く、トイレが混んでいるからと人前で立小便をしたり(こ...
Reviewed:2019/01/20 迫力ある闘牛と牛への愛情
宇和島の闘牛を初めて見ました。闘牛前後の牛はとてもやさしいのですが、いざ闘牛となると満身の力を振り絞り筋肉が浮き出てきます。文化と伝統と牛への愛情を教えていただきました。外国の一部の人々は、動物への虐待と言う人が居ますが、牛相撲と考えています。力比べと牛への愛情。勝っても負けても牛への拍手と声援。忘れられません!!
Reviewed:2018/10/29 機会あれば是非に
日本で数箇所しか開催されていない貴重なものです。牛対牛の力相撲です。
宇和島闘牛は勝敗が決まるまで(片方の戦意喪失)続けます。闘わずして負けの不戦勝から、20分以上の長丁場まで、対戦相手の噛み合わせ次第で結果は様々です。
今回の観戦では横綱 仁王の不屈の根性が素晴らしかったです。
前日15時までにHPからネット予約すると、1人500引きになります。

          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.
