Traditional Streets/Houses

This neighborhood in the Kawanoishi District of Honai-cho, Yawatahama City retains many well preserved buildings from the Meiji to early Showa periods. One of these buildings is the red brick warehouse of Toyo Boseki, which was established in 1887 as the prefecture’s first spinning company. Others include the Shiraishi Wataro Yokan, an example of Giyofu (quasi-western) architecture, as well as the Ehime Sanshu building, a National Tangible Cultural Property. Visitors can feel the industrial history of the town.

          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.
