Ehime

Restaurant Guide in Ehime

Ehime prefecture is located on the Seto Inland Sea side of Shikoku. Thirty percent of its population is concentrated in the capital city of Matuyama. The area to the east of the cities of Imabari and Saijo is called Toyo, the area west of the city of Ozu and Uchiko-cho is called Nanyo, and all other areas are called Chuyo. The climate in the Seto Inland Sea

side is mild with little rain, but the inland region is cool, and highland vegetables and other products are grown there. In summer, a unique phenomenon to the coastal region of the Seto Inland Sea called “calm” occurs, which makes daytime temperature rise over 35-degrees Celsius, and evenings similar to tropical nights. Littoral region is an industrial area, and in the city of Imabari in Toyo region, shipbuilding has been thriving since long ago. In recent years, Imabari towels have been attracting attention as high quality domestic towels. In Imabari, “Shimanami Kaido” (Nishiseto Expressway) runs to Onomichi in Hiroshima by connecting the six islands including Oshima and Omishima with a total length of 59.4 kilometers. Since all the bridges including the Tatara Bridge, the largest cable-stayed bridge in the world and the Kurushima Kaikyo Bridge, which is the first of its kind in the world consisting of three successive suspension bridges, can be crossed either by foot or bicycle, Shimanami Kaido has become a popular sightseeing spot. In the agricultural sector, fruits such as tangerine, iyokan, and kiwi are grown in different places, and production volume of iyokan is the highest in the nation. Culturing of fish is also flourishing, and pearls and young yellowtails are cultured in Uwakai. Culturing of sea bream in this area is the most famous in Japan. When sightseeing in Ehime, Matsuyama city often becomes the base as it once flourished as the castle town of the Matsudaira clan with 150,000 koku of fief. In the city, there is Dogo onsen hot springs with 3,000 years of history, and many men of culture including Natsume Soseki have visited here. Dogo is particularly known as the place where the story of “Bocchan” based on Soseki’s personal experience when he came to Matsuyama as a teacher takes place. Bocchan dango associated with the story is enjoyed as a local signature confection.
