Matsuyama Day Trips
Walk in the footsteps of Buddhist saint Kobo Daishi and experience Shikoku’s 88 temples through ancient and modern Japan.
25 minutes south of Matsuyama lie two of Shikoku’s hidden treasures. Kabuki theatre, historical districts, castle and one of Japan’s most beautiful residences.
One of the best bike rides in the world. 7 different suspensions bridges linking Shikoku to Honshu traversing 6 culturally dense seto islands.
Clear turquoise water, fine beaches, strange rock formations; this “jurassic park” island, located 20 minutes north of Matsuyama, also has friendly deer roaming around!
Highest mountain in western Japan, this sacred mountain is a beautiful, if challenging, hike in any season.
Plus…Imabari is also nice!
