Furuiwaya古岩屋

Mountain

These giant conglomerate stone spires, which towers over its surroundings and has some 20-million years of stratum, has been the nationally designated Place of Scenic Beauty. The sight of 20-some strange spires ranging in height from 60 to 100 meters tall will take your breath away. The naked rock face has had countless holes carved into it by water erosion over the years, leading to it being named Furuiwaya. Known for beautiful autumn colors, tourists flock to the area when the trees start changing in early November to see the contrast between the vivid fall colors and the unyielding rock face.

          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.
