Gogoshima Island

Gogoshima is the island that sits nearest the coastline of Matsuyama, dominating the skyline with its mountain Kofujiyama which can be climbed easily. Ferries ply regularly between Takahama port in Matsuyama and on Gogoshima, Tomari and Yura ports. The ferry trip to either port takes about 15 minutes.

The island is largely dedicated to growing fruit such as citrus and biwa. It has a pilgrimage route of 88 temples and shrines.

Gogoshima has a number of pretty, sandy beaches. Those located nearer the roads have stalls in summer selling ice cream, beer and snacks, with shaded tables. The island is home to fishing birds such as herons and cormorants, and birds of prey including buzzards and hawks.

The island doesn’t have many shops.
