Island with lots of deer

A beautiful small island of the coast of Hojo Town. Very near to Matsuyama and worth a day out (half a day). Once you've walked up to the view point and fed the deer there is not... read more

We went to this cute little island for half a day (just 20 minutes by train and 1 minute by ferry!!). The water around the island is just superb. The view of the Inland sea is breathtaking. You can walk around the island in just 20 minutes. Absolutely worth the visit. Before we took the ferry to the island we... More

I took a half day-trip here with my mom from Matsuyama and found it a very nice outing, even in the hot humidity of summer. From Hojo station, it's a few minutes walk through a peaceful little town to the ferry port. The "port" is really just one building where you can buy a ticket to ride the ferry. I... More

Just a short train ride from Matsuyama, this is a great place to get away for a day on the beach. Kashima means "Deer Island", and it lives up to its name. Wild deer roam island, not really afraid of humans (although it`s not a good idea to approach them). There is a good sandy beach with washrooms, running water... More

A beautiful small island of the coast of Hojo Town. Very near to Matsuyama and worth a day out (half a day). Once you've walked up to the view point and fed the deer there is not much to do. That said it is a beautiful place to chill out. Popular in the summer with young Japanese who like beach... More

Hojo is a great day trip Takes about 30 minutes from matsuyama to hojo station. Walk about ten mins to the small harbour and then a two minute ride to the island. Walk around to the far side of the island.It only takes ten minutes. There is a small beach beside a sea arch. Put your picnic stuff down and... More
