Chuyo is the central area of Ehime. It has lots of historical and cultural places to visit.
One of the most popular sights in Chuyo, the “Dogo Onsen” in the castle town of Matsuyama, is the oldest hot spring in Japan with a history stretching back 3,000 years. Here you can stroll around the hot spring town in a Yukata robe, ride on a rickshaw, and take photos full of classical Japanese charm!
Ehime is a prefecture in Shikoku, an island located southwest of Japan’s main island of Honshu. It faces the Seto Inland Sea and enjoys mild to warm weather. It’s easily accessible from popular cities like Hiroshima and Beppu, and is not far from Kyoto or Osaka. Let me introduce Ehime in 3 areas: “Chuyo”, “Toyo”, and “Nanyo”.
