The hot springs at Dogo are some of Japan’s oldest, they were used by nobility and celebrities in the 6th Century and are still being used today. Dogo Onsen Honkan is the main public bathhouse, an elegant three storey timber building built in 1894 and is the only bath house in Japan which has a special section for use only by the Imperial family. Although it’s early if you’re around at 6:30 in the morning you’ll hear them ring a giant bell to let everyone know they’re open for business.
