What to Expect
Matsuyama Castle is one of the most popular castles in Japan. It is located on a hill with a height of 132m. From the castle tower built in the main keep can you command a 360-degree panoramic view of the city, Mt. Ishizuchi and the Seto Inland Sea, which I think is superb.
Matsuyama Castle is one of the only 12 castles retaining the structures built in the Edo period. The family of Matsudaira reigning the Matsuyama Domain was a relative of the Tokugawa Shogunate Family, meaning the behaviors of the feudal lord was very difficult at around the end of Edo period. During the tour course, you will be explained about subtle delicacy in the Matsuyama fief at the times around the collapse of the Tokugawa period or the beggining of the Meiji era.
Walking down the Ropeway street must be fun for you, because there are many restaurants and shops selling Ehime Specialties.
This is the most popular course in many possible castle tours.
