Matsuyama Travel Guide: 125 reviews and 212 photos

Matsuyama is away from the main tourist path but nevertheless has all that you are looking for in Japan - history, a castle, hot springs, beautiful parks, shrines etc. The city is also blessed with the temperate Seto Inland Sea climate, it can easily be reached by ferry or by train and the Shikoku landscape is green and hilly. We were especially lucky to be there when the cherries just started blooming, so of course everything was still more beautiful.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:climate, hot springs, old castle
  • In a nutshell:Pleasant city with many sights but not many western tourists!

    Hello. Your HP popped up on VTHP. Very nice quality photos of Mastuyama. I have not been this city. But your Pics convince me to visit next time. Have a good day.

    Great page Ines, and the foot bath at dogo onsen must be heaven after walking round seeing the sights. I always stick my feet in fountains whether I am supposed to or not! :-)
