“Places like Uwajima were just made to reward travellers who are brave enough to step off the tourist trail and explore hidden Japan”

Harry Sargant, Sales Manager

Uwajima is a fine place to simply stroll around and experience the feeling of being in a part of Japan rarely glimpsed by foreign eyes. The town's sights include a formal stroll garden, a museum highlighting Uwajima's historical importance as home to the 16th Century Date clan, and an eye-opening fertility shrine, with attached sex museum! Nearby Uwajima Bay and the surrounding coast has some stunning scenery making an excursion out of the city also well worthwhile.
