  • In the South of the castle of Matsuyama Castle, located on Museum Hill. From the ropeway as one from than Prefectural Government. Go up the slope and you will see amazing modern architecture. This is a place not to be missed. Recommend paying the entrance fee, take a tour. Great design of stairs especially with stained-glass Windows. Enjoy a relaxing time.
