Shiroyama Park Horinouchi District城山公園・堀之内地区

Park / Green Space

An urban park sprawling in the Sannomaru on the west side of Matsuyama Castle. Surrounded by earthen walls and enclosed by a moat, the Horinouchi area was completed in 1605 and was built to serve as a palace for feudal lords, a residence for retainers, and as a government facility for the domain where rice was stored. Today, the area is maintained as a field where visitors can enjoy light exercises like running and playing catch. The park is also used for events on weekends and serves as a space for local residents to rest and relax. In spring, many cherry trees bloom in the park, and it has even been selected as one of the Japan Top 100 Sakura Viewing Sites. When the trees are flowering, the park bustles with large numbers of visitors come to see the blossoms.

          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.
