Masaki Things to Do
This Shinto shrine is run by my father in law, Kazutaka 'Harmony' Takechi and is located about 15 minutes walk from both Okada and Koizumi stations on the Iyotetsu line.
Masaki is easily reached on the Gunchu line from Matsuyama city station. It takes around 15 minutes or so and costs around 300 yen.
Only very recently opened is Emi Full, Shikoku's largest shopping centre, with a stack of shops, and places to eat. When I visited it was very very popular.
It is very close to Koizumi station on the Iyotetsu Gunchu line.
Masaki Local Customs
Festivals are held several times a year at Tamou Hachiman Daijinja. Worth taking a look if you are in the vicinity.
Favorite thing: Like much of Shikoku outside the four main cities, Masaki is a hodgepodge of factories, rice paddies, vegetable fields and houses. Town planning is not something that has ever really been on the agenda!
