When I first heard that I was going to Ehime, I thought I would be stranded in a boring 田舎, or countryside, but I was surprised by how lively the city is! After classes, we went to Matsuyama Castle, Dogo Onsen, and Baishinji Beach.

We also did fireworks and celebrated an intern’s birthday with cake and a barbecue. Just like Hokkaido, the Japanese staff were so welcoming and wanted to show us everything Matsuyama has to offer.

Dogo Onsen is one of the world’s oldest hot springs, and we went there!
