Shinonome Shrine (東雲神社) in Matsuyama.
Located close to the Rope-way entrance that will take you to the castle! You’ll come across a steep flight of grey stoned stairs that takes you 2 ways, to the castle itself (left) if you fancy walking up the hill, and the other (right), to the Shinonome Shrine. Constructed in 1823, with a long relationship with Noh performances held here during April. I love shrines, especially ones that are located on a hill / mountain simply because it is blessed with a good view, here there were also beautiful greenery that shaded me away from the blazing sun.
