Matsuyama features a number of historical sites and acts as a gateway for exploring the rest of Shikoku.
Get a sense of the local culture at Miyajima and Matsuyama Castle. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Itsukushima Shrine and Ishiteji. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Matsuyama: Mikasahama Beach (in Hatsukaichi) and Namekawakeikoku (in Toon). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Kashima Kaisuiyokujo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tsubaki Shrine, and head outdoors with Takahama Coast.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Matsuyama trip itinerary site.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Matsuyama is an approximately 18-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Tel Aviv to Matsuyama. Expect slightly colder temperatures when traveling from Tel Aviv in October; daily highs in Matsuyama reach °C and lows reach °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) early enough to drive to Takamatsu.
