If your trip to Matsuyama is all booked but your travel itinerary is a bit on the empty side, let us give you a helping hand.
Not far from the heart of the city, Dogo Giyaman Glass Museum is one sight to consider putting on your to-do list. If you still have space on that travel schedule, Hogonji Temple and Dogo Onsen will keep you on the go, too.
We know you want to see what your new ride can do. How about venturing out on a day trip to Imabari? Just 19 miles away, roll down the windows and enjoy the wind in your hair on the way there. Itoyama Park ought to be high up on your list here. Imabari Kono Museum and Imabari Textile Resource Center are interesting attractions too. Locals will also likely point you in the direction of Saijo, 19 miles away. If you only see one attraction here, let it be Ishizuchi Shrine. (But we'd also highly recommend Ehime Folk Museum and Fujimori Shrine.)
We've pulled together a list of our best tips and tricks to help you save:
Having your own ride in Matsuyama will give you more flexibility to go wherever you want at your own pace. Maybe you just can't wait to skip town, get out on the open road, and go wherever the wind takes you. If that's the case, grab the keys to one of our SUVs and explore the beautiful tablelands in the surrounding area. If you're all about city life, take to the wheel of something small. Dashing around heavy traffic will be a whole lot easier in a compact or economy car.
You'll be glad to know that there's a broad range of both economy and high-end rentals in Matsuyama. What you end up going for will depend on what you're willing to spend and what you're hoping to do. Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to mod cons and comfort. If you feel like splashing out, why not grab a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps an upmarket mid-size sedan? Alternatively, if you're just after something to whiz around town in as cheaply as possible, you're better off choosing an economy vehicle (or something else that won't blow your budget).
