[Japan Travel]: Matsuyama - Day 3  

It's finally time for the photos of day 3 in Matsuyama which was also my last day there. After that I went to Kochi and then to Naruto to see the famous whirlpools, but that's not the topic of this entry today XD

Matsuyama - Day 3 (April 5th, 2009):

Day 3 was mainly spent in the Dogo Onsen area and it was a long and very interesting day :) Enjoy~

Be aware: too many photos today! XD )

Approached by a middle-aged female guide!! Read the whole story! *lol* XD )

Dogo Onsen and the very awesome Ishite Temple )

And that was my last day in Matsuyama. I'm sorry that it were so many photos this time! I already selected just a few (originally there were WAY more).
Ishite is an awesome temple! If you ever have the chance to go there, DO IT!! (*_*)
Next will be Kochi! XD

[Japan Travel]: Matsuyama - Day 2  
And here we go again ^-^

I stayed 3 days in Matsuyama (maybe 1 day too long), so I decided to use day 2 as my "break day" (it seems I always need one day where I don't do too much to recover again XD
It was raining almost the whole day anyway, so it was a good thing I decided not to do that much that day.
I still visited a few things and went shopping (*_*)

Matsuyama - Day 2 (April 4th, 2009):

Rain can't stop me?! )

Read more... )

Lunch time? Shopping arcade! Freiburg Garden! Starbucks (*-*) )

And that was my day 2 in Matsuyama.
I told you that it wouldn't be very interesting. Hope you enjoyed it nevertheless.
Day 3 was full of awesomeness again (so expect at least twice as much photos as today XD)

[Japan Travel]: Matsuyama - Day 1  
Hi everybody,

Sorry it's been a while. Like I told you before I had to work 6 days this week, so today is my only day off and so much stuff to do.
I'll be less busy in the next two weeks, so hopefully I can update more often.

Anyway, I'm posting today to finally continue with the photos of my spring vacation 2009.
After I left Okayama, I went straight to Shikoku, one of the huge islands in Japan.
There are several ways to get there (e.g. by ship, ferry, train or car). Everything leads over or through the ocean, though.
I travelled by train and it was awesome!! Honshu is connected to Shikoku via a huuuuuuuge bridge over the sea. Beautiful view, I tell you ^-^

Shikoku (四国?, "four provinces") is the smallest (225 km long and between 50 and 150 km wide) and least populous (4,141,955 as of 2005) of the four main islands of Japan, located south of Honshū and east of Kyūshū island. Its ancient names include Iyo-no-futana-shima (伊予之二名島), Iyo-shima (伊予島), and Futana-shima (二名島). The current name refers to the four former provinces which made up the island: Awa, Tosa, Sanuki, and Iyo.

Anyway, I arrived in Matsuyama at noon on April 3rd 2009. Here's my day.

Matsuyama - Day 1 (April 3rd, 2009):

Arrival in Matsuyama and Matsuyama Castle )

Matsuyama Central Park )

Dogo Onsen )

And that was my pretty busy, but awesome first day in Matsuyama which I'd like to call "pink flower day" XDDDD
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
