Castles · Landmarks · Onsen Resorts
Matsuyama features a number of historical sites and acts as a gateway for exploring the rest of Shikoku. Developed out of a small castle town, Matsuyama retains many buildings from the Meiji period, including historic onsen (traditional Japanese spas), temples, and a hilltop castle. Several museums and other cultural institutions provide an introduction into the history of the island and its people, with many of the attractions in Matsuyama relating to the life of Masaoka Shiki, the father of the haiku poetry.
