Ikata (伊方町 Ikata-chō)  is a town in Ehime. It spans the mountainous Sadamisaki Peninsula, the narrowest peninsula in Japan. Ikata's breath-taking combination of mountain and ocean scenery makes it a wonderful place for a leisurely afternoon drive.
Sadamisaki Lighthouse. This lighthouse stands at the tip of the peninsula, overlooking the Hōyo Strait. On clear days you can see across to Kyūshū. 1.8 km of hiking trails and a campground lay at its feet.edit
Seto Wind Hill Park. This park is located atop a mountain in the Seto area. From it you can see many of Ikata's numerous windmills, spinning above the Inland Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. Haikus about the windmills, submitted for Ikata's Windmill Festival, are on display in the park. See webcam images from the park, updated every hour. edit
Ikata Visitors Center. This hands-on science museum teaches all about nuclear power with beautiful interactive displays and fun activities for all ages. The building is connected to the Kirara-kan, which houses an aquarium and sells souvenirs and local agricultural products.edit
Red Wing Park. Named after Ikata's sister city, this park is home to Adventure Hill—a playground full of climbing nets, roller slides, and other exciting children's play equipment.edit
