As our hotel stay included a limited visit to Dogo Onsen, we went in briefly to experience and try out the onsen facility, which was just ordinary as we didn't take the tour. Be prepared to bring along your own amenities as it was a...More

The onsen experience itself is worth going, and this one is very popular. Although it was not the best onsen, crowdy and only one bath on the women section... the visit of the emperor's private onsen and the room with the Soseki pictures make this...More

From the tram station to Dogo Onsen Honkan there is a shopping arcade where you can find any kind of souvenirs. Soseki, a famous Japanese writer often visited this Onsen and supposedly he also walked these streets.
