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.

Nice Onsen with four levels of service to choose from. All levels are public gender specific baths (true to Onsen tradition), but paying more gets access to smaller less crowded baths and private tatami rooms to chill out in your yukata (kimono) with some tea...More

I enjoyed very much of my 2-day staying there. The old onsen, perhaps more appropriately called a royal onsen, attracts a lot of local and international visitors. Outside the onsen building, there is a main street of shops selling souvenirs and foods. The atmosphere is...More
