Matsuyama City Station (松山市駅)

Following the previous post, I returned from Emifull Masaki to Matsuyama City station (松山市駅).

I found a tram which had a two-tone beige and orange pained body.Matsuyama tram1

Two trams were in line.Matsuyama tram2

IYOTETSU Railways has a variety of trams in terms of its body colors and I like this type best.""

There was a mailbox of Mican near the station.みきゃん ポスト

One of the spots I would like to visit in this trip was “Botchan train Museum (坊っちゃん列車ミュージアム)”.""

“Botchan train Museum (坊っちゃん列車ミュージアム)” was opened in December 2016 on the first floor of the IYOTETSU headquarters. There was also Starbucks and the backroom was a space for exhibition.""

Okaido (大街道)

I moved from Matsuyama City station to Okaido (大街道) where I will stay tonight. I found such a equipment of multilingual tourists information.""

I am going to stay at “Dormy Inn Matsuyama” on the first day of the trip.""

That’s it for the article about evening scene at Matsuyama City Station and Okaido as part of Day 1 of my Ehime Matsuyama trip.

Matsuyama City Station and Okaido are both good locations to take evening photos in Matsuyama. If you would like to take night scenes in Matsuyama, I recommend these two venues 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Ehime Prefectural Government as part of Day 2.
