Hojyo Kashima

Shigeki Naganuma

Dec 27, 2017

If you love the sea, you must come to Kashima! It’s an island in Ehime prefecture, located about 400 meters from Hokujo port in the city of Matsuyama. It has a beautiful promenade by the ocean. It’s here that I particularly enjoy taking a leisurely walk to soak up the spectacular views of nature. Did you know: the name “Kashima” comes from the wild deer that roam inside the forest, with the Chinese character “Ka” meaning deer.

Don’t forget to also explore the observatory on the mountaintop. Here, I could look out to the islands on the Seto Inland Sea and the Hokujo district. The view is simply stunning, especially with the sunlight reflecting off the peaceful ocean surface! To get here, take a 15-minute walk from Iyo Hokujo station to the wharf; from there you can hop on a boat to take you to Kashima for 210 yen per ride.

北条港から約400メートルの海上にある島が鹿島です。鹿島は海沿いと山中に遊歩道があり、季節ごとの自然に触れながら散策を楽しむことができます。鹿島の名は緑あふれる森の中に実際に野生の鹿が生息していることから由来されています。山頂にある展望台からは瀬戸内の島々と、北条地区を一望することができ、日差しで海面がキラキラと光る自然美を堪能することができます。沖合には浮島の景勝があり、日本の文人墨客らが集い多くの句を残しました。伊予北条駅から渡船場までは歩いて15分、そこから鹿島までは船で往復210円で渡ることができます。
