    The Mitsuhama area has flourished in maritime trade and fishing since the Edo Period, and was the center of the regional economy as Matsuyama’s “gateway to the sea.” Escaping the destruction of the war, many buildings from the early Showa Period or earlier remain. Streets named “Mud Wall Alley,” “Former Bank Street,” “Former Doctor Street,” housed companies and banks of the Meiji and Taisho Eras, with a Western-style building such as a doctor’s office, an old private house with wooden lattice doors, etc., creating a landscape unique to Mitsuhama that leaves a strong impression of the past. The town has revived with new activities such as cafes and shops while preserving the nostalgia.
