Next Summer Why Not Try a Retro Showa Era Style Hot Spring Hotel with Juice Faucets??

Over the course of 2 recent articles, we introduced some delightful ways of enjoying Dogo Onsen and its surroundings:

This time we’d like to introduce one of the hot springs in the Dogo area.

Befitting the ‘old and good’ Dogo image, the hot spring hotel’s appearance is that of a retro Showa era building.

The hotel is located only a couple of minutes walk from Dogo Onsen’s main building the shopping district. As well as there being plenty of sightseeing areas nearby, there are plenty of fun things to enjoy within the hotel, as well.

In the lobby, a live performance of the Iyo region’s traditional “Matsuyama Suigun Daiko” starts at 21.00 in the evening.




Both the powerful taiko drum itself and the dynamic drumming is a must-see! During the summer holiday season, there are also taiko drum lessons available for children.
Also during the summer season, a juice faucet is set up in the lobby, which is exciting for both children and adults alike.

As this is a hot spring hotel, the hot springs are naturally part of the fun, too.

If you stay at Hotel Tsubakikan, you can also use the hot springs in other nearby hotels.

Visitors can enjoy various hot springs such as an outdoor bath surrounded by a traditional Japanese garden, and an outdoor bath on an observation deck with lovely night views.




You can also taste special dishes that received awards in a recipe contest arranged in collaboration with the JA women’s group.

At the time this article was written, they were serving the cool green asparagus soup that won the grand prix in the asparagus recipe contest, the asparagus spring rolls that won second prize, and asparagus-clam butter.




For those who prefer spending time in private relaxing with the family, we recommend the special guest rooms that have private hot spring baths with either a stone or a cypress timber bathtub.

If you choose Hotel Tsubakikan as your base in Dogo, your visit will surely be even more fun!
