Namegawa Gorge滑川渓谷


This hinterlands valley is around 8 kilometers from the famous cherry-blossom viewing area, Sakura-Sanri, along National Route 11. Come experience the mysteries of nature in this valley and see the Namera, a river bed made from one large spacious rock that stretches almost a kilometer in length, as well as potholes formed by smaller stones caught in the whirlpools cutting into the larger boulders. A popular spot in the spring when the new verdant green leaves emerge and during the summer as a cool place to escape the heat. With amazing autumn colors in the fall and icicles stretching longer than two meters in the winter, there's something to enjoy here year-round. This valley with its mysterious rockface formed over countless years has certainly earned its reputation as a secluded natural power spot (spiritual place with energy vortex).

          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.
