Takashimaya Department Store

Iyotetsu Takashimaya Department Store occupies one side of Matsuyama Shieki station. It's a massive emporium of luxury goods, from fashion to food. On the roof of Takashimaya stands the Kururin Ferris wheel, a major landmark of Matsuyama.


Matsuyama has a wide range of shopping areas including covered arcades, malls, and department stores. The two arcades in central Matsuyama and in Dogo serve as the arteries to a much larger area of shops and restaurants.
