Godan Kogen Highlands五段高原
Also known as ''Heaven's Road'', this highland runs alongside Prefectural Route 383. You can walk here from Mezurudaira, located in the center of the Shikoku Karst. The peak, sometimes called Godan Castle, sits almost 1,456 meters above sea level. On clear days you can see Mt. Ishizuchi, Tosa Bay, and the Shikoku mountain range. The highland is well deserving its title as the foremost viewing spot of the Shikoku karst with the ''Karrenfeld'' exposed limestone rocks and a basin-like ''doline'' sinkhole. The road has been chosen as one of the top 100 roads of Japan with its beautiful scenery that makes you feel like you're amongst the beautiful blue sky and pure white clouds.

Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs.
