Located on the grounds of Shosouji Temple, this is a reconstruction of the place where famous Japanese poet Masaoka Shiki lived until he was 17. There’s a recreation of his study as well, and his desk, calligraphy, and personal articles are on display. In the plaza out front, you’ll also find the “Bocchan train,” which is the oldest extant light locomotive.

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.
