Most may not expect to find a French-style villa below Matsuyama Castle, but the elegant structure offers some respite from the bustling urban center of Ehime. Bansuiso, largely hidden by trees and modern buildings, was originally the second home of Earl Hisamatsu Sadakoto, a descendant of the Matsuyama samurai clan and former lord of the neighboring castle.
