Mt. Ishizuchi石鎚山


At 1,982 meters tall this sacred mountain, also called the roof of Shikoku, is the tallest mountain in west Japan. It stands over Saijo City and Kumakogen Town and from the highest point, Tengudake peak, you can of course see the Seto Inland Sea but also the mountains in the Chugoku and Kyushu regions. It is counted alongside Mt. Fuji, Mt. Tateyama, Mt. Hakusan, Mt. Shakagatake, Mt. Omine, and Mt. Daisen as one of Japan's Seven Holy Mountains. The area around Mt. Ishizuchi has been designated a quasi-national park and displays a different mysterious form every season. The four separate chained areas for climbing the mountain are a rarity nationwide. As there are detours it is safe even for beginners.

          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.
