For the next year, I will call Matsuyama City, on Japan’s Shikoku Island, home. One of the city’s main attractions is Matsuyama Castle, which is often considered one of Japan’s most beautiful original castles. Constructed in the early 17th Century, the castle sits a top of a large hill, offering serene views of Matsuyama City on clear days. I’m still getting used to life in Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s four main islands, but I hope to share many more stories in the months to come. I’ll also be blogging about the English language at my company’s English Website, 1 Point.
