  • If you go from Cape Ashizuri to Shimanto City towardu Uwajima City, you will be going along the Shimanto River from the vicinity of the mouth of the river to the border of Ehime Prefecture. It is a large river with a lot of water, a river representative of Shikoku. There are almost no seawall construction, concrete structures, etc., and you can see the pristine scenery. When I visited here, I could understand the reason why it is said to be "the last clear stream in Japan" well. The river flows slowly. I felt like returning to my childhood and playing in the water.

  • We took a rental car from Matsuyama Station and arrived at the station of the road of Ekawasaki in 2 hours and 30 minutes through Matsuyama Road. Get information at the roadside station and first arrive at Iwama Subsidence Bridge in 10 minutes from the roadside station. There is a tea shop on the right side of the road where you can park your car. The Iwama Subsidence Bridge seen from the parking lot is closed to traffic because the bridge is washed off on the way. The damage to the previous typhoon has not repaired it. Next, it goes to the subsidence bridge of the downstream part, but National Route 441 narrows the lane in some places and waits for the oncoming car many times. Because it is dangerous on the way, I make a U-turn and head to the upstream Nagao-Sae-Same Bridge. This is a parking space on the side of the national highway. There were some anglers on the Changing Shenqiao Bridge, some relaxing in tents. A light car crossed the bridge as we went halfway through the subsidence bridge. I'm too scared to cross. The Shimanto River has a peaceful view with slow flow. This subsidence bridge is recommended. On the way back, I bought a souvenir at the roadside station.
