Matsuyama features a number of historical sites and acts as a gateway for exploring the rest of Shikoku.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Matsuyama Castle and Tsubaki Shrine. Visit Itsukushima Shrine and Monjuin Tokuseiji Temple for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Matsuyama: Namekawakeikoku (in Toon) and Hatsukaichi (Miyajima & Mikasahama Beach). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kashima Kaisuiyokujo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ishiteji, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Takahama Coast.

To find traveler tips, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Matsuyama vacation planner .

Tel Aviv, Israel to Matsuyama is an approximately 18-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Tel Aviv to Matsuyama. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Tel Aviv in October, with highs in Matsuyama at 26°C and lows at 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can go by car to Takamatsu.
