Uchiko-za Kabuki Theatre内子座
This is a two-story theatre building with a gabled and tiled roof which was built in 1916, and its wooden architectural structure is representative of Aichi Prefecture. It was temporarily remodelled into a cinema, and there were also plans to demolish the building due to its deterioration, but in 1985 due to the zeal of the townspeople, the building was restored to its original condition at the time of being initially constructed. Public performances are done making best use of such things as “hanamichi” (stage–passages), “mawari-butai” (revolving stage), “masu-seki” (box seats) and Japanese musical accompaniment behind black bamboo screen. Again it is also possible to participate in a tour of the interior of the theatre when there are no events being held.

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.
