Matsuyama is a quiet, residential city located on the island of Shikoku. It is off the beaten path of what people think of Japan. It is a city, yet it is located in a part of Japan that is linked to its rural past, more than most any part of Japan today. When you get outside of the city, the visitor gets a glimpse into Japan's past.
