    Ōzu is called the ‘little Kyōto of Iyo’. The Garyū Sansō villa is built on a remarkably picturesque bend in the Hijikawa River which runs through the town. A wealthy Meiji merchant gathered master craftsmen from Kyōto and Kōbe and spent ten years on the concept and four years building it. It was completed in 1907. Garyū Sansō comprises three buildings, all featuring the elegant beauty of traditional Japanese building techniques. The garden incorporates views of the surrounding mountains and river, which present a different face in each season.
