Facing Imabari Harbor, Isshodo is a Japanese-style confectionary founded in 1790. Its most famous product, Keiran Manju (egg buns) is still one of the most famous confections in Ehime Prefecture. In the Edo period, Ote Manju (creamy bean paste buns) were popular in the area around Imabari Castle, and it is said that Keiran Manju were invented by the first owner of Isshodo, who used eggs instead of water when he kneaded the dough. Baked Keiran Manju are one of the products available only at this shop. However, Isshodo sells sweets other than Manju, including baked goods such as tarts and Castella cake. All of these are extremely popular souvenirs.

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.
