To learn about life in a feudal castle, Matsuyama Castle is not to be missed. It has the additional advantage of being located on a mountain which enables travellers to take in an astounding bird's eye view of Matsuyama City and the Seto Island Sea.

3) Board a Botchan Steam Train

To spice up your trip to Dogo Onsen, board the dignified Botchan Train 坊ちゃん列車 that is a faithful representation of the train depicted in Soseki Natsume's novel. Even if you are unfamiliar with his novel, you will be amazed by how this train putters around the city, much like a steam locomotive!

4) Savor mikan sakana (Japanese citrus fish)
