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.
