Uchiko

Uchiko, a little town within one hour’s drive from Matsuyama, flourished from 1720s to 1930s, as a production center for traditional wax made from a kind of nuts, whose quality was worldly recognized. “Yokaichi & Gokoku Quarters”, or antique district of those days was designated as an important preservation district for historic buildings. You can stroll the 600 meter long street with fine white and yellowish walled merchants’ homes and warehouses, feeling back to its good old days.
