Futami Seaside Park

Nobuyuki Tanaka

Feb 6, 2018

If you like stunning sunsets and beautiful seascapes, then Futami Seaside Park should on your list of must-visit places in Ehime. Known for its beautiful sunset, the park has been selected as one of Japan’s top 100 sunsets. With plenty of romance-themed monuments such as the Lover’s Cape and a Wishing Rock, it’s no wonder this place has been designated the “holy ground for lovers”.

The park has a Road Station that sells a variety of food and local produce. I recommend trying their ‘Love Jakoten’, which is a deep-fried patty of fish paste made into the shape of a heart. Jakoten is an Ehime specialty, and makes for a great snack that’s best enjoyed with drinks. So if you’re in the area, bring your significant other, and share a romantic moment as you watch the sunset together.

The park is just a 5-minute walk from the JR Line Iyo Kaminada Station, and opens from 8:30 to 17:15. Do take note that they’re closed from December 29 to January 3.

恋人とぜひ行ってみてほしいのが、「日本の夕陽百選」にも選ばれている「ふたみシーサイド公園」です。恋人岬はもちろん、夕日の観覧席(階段式護岸)や、願い石、幸せの鐘などがあり、カップルたちにおすすめの人気スポットとなっています。平成20年4月にはNPO法人地域活性化センターが実施している「恋人の聖地」の認定を受け、ますます人気のスポットに。恋人の岬の近くにある願い石に二人で手を乗せて夕日を見ると、願いが叶い、幸せになれると言われています。また、人気のじゃこ天コーナーでは、ハート型のラヴじゃこ天を買うことができます(1枚70円)。じゃこ天とは、魚のじゃこを練り物と混ぜて油であげた食べ物で、磯の香りと柔らかい食感が美味しく、お酒のつまみにも合います。ぜひデートに訪れてみてください!
