[Introduction]

I traveled to Ehime and Kagawa Prefecture for 4 days and 3 nights. In this article, I will write about Twenty-Four Eyes Movie Village (Nijyushi-no-hitomi eigamura). The facility remains exactly same as it was when the movie was shot and I felt as if I slipped back in time to the Showa Era.

Existing old school building

In addition, there is an existing old school building that served as a model of the movie near the movie village. It was actually used for an elementary school from 1902 to 1972 and I visited there.Twenty-Four Eyes Movie Village (Nijyushi-no-hitomi eigamura) 31
