#1 of 15 in Museums in Matsuyama
Explore the early 20th-century house of Bansuiso. Built by Earl Sadakoto Hisamatsu in a 19th-century French Gothic style, the house was once known for its high society parties, but now serves as a sightseeing destination and venue for various public events. After exploring the ornately decorated rooms, consider paying a little extra to venture to the first floor, where balconies afford fantastic photo opportunities of the grounds, gatehouse, and surrounding area. Be sure to check the listings to see what kind of events are running during your visit.

  • But time, just from the Museum on the Hill. There was blooming rose in the area is very beautiful. I want to go in any time.

  • Stands on a slope, so views from the terrace of the Museum, facing slope above the view from below is stunning. Surrounded by trees, only one building standing figure seems to be scenes of the film. Inside is not wide, but with a crystal chandelier is beautiful.

  • Looks good from the Museum on the Hill. Some Word Akiyama brothers, Masaoka Shiki, Soseki Natsume, drawn from the Meiji era, as this building.

  • Outside is lovely. Elegant little Cafe. Main building is empty except for a few paintings, not worth price of admission. Enjoy the freebies.
  • Small side trip in Matsuyama. Interesting to see a French style mansion in Japan. Worth an hour stop.
  • It's nicest from the outside, not much to see inside of you can't read Japanese though there was an array of hats on display when I visited.
  • Walk on main road opposite from Okaido tram station. 2mins away only
  • Nice building in a beautiful setting. However, if you don't have time, skip going inside as there isn't much to see
