Onsen & Hot Springs /

Dogo Onsen is a popular tourist spot in the middle of Ehime that was once chronicled in The Nihon Shoki. Its even said to be Japan’s oldest hot spring resort. According to legend, there was once an egret that healed its injured leg after dipping in the springs of Dogo Onsen. At this onsen you’ll find an alkali simple spring, with smooth, gentle waters that soothe, rejuvenate and beautify the skin.

The Dogo Onsen is a historic building site with immense splendor and history. In Japan, it is classified as an Important Cultural Property. While currently under restorative construction, the springs are still open and available for events you will only be able to see for a limited time. There are also plenty of shopping streets, tourist spots, and foot baths to explore nearby, perfect for a stroll in yukata.

    入浴的人太多,浴池都來不及清洗,有很多毛髮和污垢,感覺很噁心!

  • Matthew

    溫泉泡的又舒服,附近也有很多的觀光景點商店,值得一遊。

  • Zeon Gelgoog

    吉卜力動畫的湯屋原型而聞名,閣頂樓上有著白鷺的雕像,據說溫泉是白鷺所發現的,有許多歷史神話故事穿鑿附會著,每個來到愛媛縣旅遊必去景點之一。

  • Keny Giri

    超過三千年歷史的溫泉,又是米其林星級景點,絕對不能錯過

  • Hung Jung

    日本最古老的溫泉,溫泉本館建築又最具歷史意義,就算排隊人很多很熱閙,一定要體驗泡湯的樂趣。

  • 潘庭瑜

    車站前的小廣場停著一部早期蒸汽火車,站前還有足湯可以泡腳

  • 許美鳳

    只有在本館面前拍拍照沒有進去泡湯.。溫泉館附近周遭有商店街很熱鬧,是一個很熱門的景點
