    Imabari Restaurants

    Hamazushi is a chain restaurant offering some pretty good sushi at reasonable prices.The Imabari restaurant is a short walk from Nankobo temple.

    Niihama Warnings and Dangers

    There are one or two bars in Niihama that operate a Japanese only policy. A shame, but rural Ehime is not the most enlightened place in terms of racial tolerance. This was some time ago now so it is hard to say if this still applies. Although I have visited Niihama a handful of times since leaving there in 2002, I haven't had a night out there.

Ehime has a number of large malls now with Emifull in Masaki and the recent new mall in Imabari.

    Iyoshi Station

    by salisbury3933 Written May 8, 2016

    The main train station in town is Iyoshi station. Express and local trains headed southwards and towards Matsuyama all stop here.

    Of note too is that the terminus station of the Iyotetsu Gunchu line, Gunchuko, is just across the road.
