Higashigama is a kiln that produces Tobe-yaki ceramics in the town where they originated, the town of Tobe in Iyo County. Although the common image of Tobe-yaki is that of plain white vessels, the products made by Alynne Ohigashi, the owner of Higashigama, will surprise visitors with their characteristically delicate feeling. Ms. Ohigashi’s ceramics have won her many fans, and the kiln, located on a plateau, has an adjacent gallery. This shop, surrounded by greenery, has a selection of wares decorated in pale colors with a botanical theme. Most of the wares that Ms. Ohigashi has been involved in creating have been decorated with a technique called “washi-nuri” (“handmade paper application”), and visitors can watch the patterns being applied.

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.
