Japan’s most famous onsen, this building dates back to 1894 and has (as legend has it) the baths of the Gods and Spirits. It also actually has the baths of the Imperial Family which you can see (but not use) while you can soak away in the baths of the Gods and Spirits for a price…. which isn’t your soul don’t worry, it’s just yen!

Dogo onsen can be reached on the Iyotetsu Line which runs from Matsuyama Station.
