Dogo Onsen Honkan

0 0 Reviews

Dogo Onsen, in central Matsuyama, is one of Japan's oldest hot springs with the main honkan one of the most famous locations at its very center. This wooden public bathhouse dates back to 1894 (Meiji Period) and is said to be one of the inspirations behind film director Hayao Miyazaki's acclaimed Spirited Away anime.


Renovation works are being carried out until 2024. During the first phase, two baths on the first floor remain open to the public while the floors above will close. Parts of the building will be covered with scaffolding during the renovation, though it is also the intention to maintain visible parts of the exterior to minimise the impact to tourists. More >

Due to the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Dogo Onsen Festival (scheduled for March 19) will be rescheduled at a later date, to be announced.
