Located on the westernmost tip of Shikoku on Japan's narrowest peninsula. Here at the edge of the Setonaikai National Park, you'll find the Cape Sada Lighthouse, which was designated as a Tangible Cultural Property of Japan in 2017. The peninsula extends 50 kilometers and is also called the 13-Ri Cape (Ri being an old Japanese measurement equal to approximately 4 kilometers). It is only 0.8 kilometers wide at its narrowest point. The area is overflowing with can't-miss tourist sights including the Cape Sada Melody Line driving course, from which you can have a panoramic view over the Seto Inland Sea, or view a 1,000-year-old giant camphor tree. On sunny days, you can see clearly across the Houyo Straight all the way to Kyushu from the Cape Sada Lighthouse.

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.
