Dōgo Onsen Honkan
The Honkan houses Dōgo Onsen, said to be Japan’s oldest hot spring with a history going back about 3,000 years. It’s been awarded three stars by the Michelin Green Guide Japan, and it’s the first public bathhouse to be designated an important national cultural property. The current building is a three-storey wooden structure rebuilt in 1894. Bathers can choose from four courses in the Kami no Yu and Tama no Yu baths. For a fee, you can also visit the Yūshinden, Japan’s only bathroom for the use of the Imperial family. A time-keeping drum in the Shinrokaku at the top of the bathhouse marks the time at 6:00, 12:00 and 18:00.
