Get Spirited Away at Dogo Onsen


Relax with a rejuvenating soak in one of Japan’s oldest hot springs


Any trip to Ehime Prefecture should include a stop at Dogo Onsen Honkan, one of the oldest hot springs in Japan. Fans of Japanese animation may recognize the façade—it's said Dogo Onsen Honkan inspired the bathhouse in an award-winning film by one of Japan’s most prestigious anime studios.




Inside, you’ll discover a labyrinth of hallways, rooms, and staircases. The tatami and wooden designs make you feel as if you've been transported back in time. Dogo Onsen Honkan mixes water from 18 different springs to ensure the perfect temperature for your bath. The mix is slightly alkaline, making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin. Health benefits and relaxation await you in these soothing waters.




Contribution to Sustainability

Dogo Onsen, one of the oldest hot springs in the country, is instrumental in preserving onsen culture and is a regularly operating public bath house loved by the local community. The stunning main building has been designated an Important Cultural Property and a portion of the revenue is used to preserve the building itself.
