    This is one of Japan’s three major karsts, located on the border between Ehime and Kōchi prefectures at a height of 1,400 m. It extends for 25 km east to west. Tengu Kōgen at an elevation of 1,485 m offers a 360-degree panorama, while Godan Kōgen and Mezurudaira with their exposed white limestone present unique scenery. In summer, the hills are carpeted in green grass, while in autumn, pampas grass flowers. From spring to autumn, cows graze the slopes, creating a pastoral scene.
