It's an alkaline simple sulfur hot spring that makes the skin soft to the touch and is said to help with nerve pain, muscle soreness, recovering from exhaustion, and chronic women's diseases.

    This bath house is marked by its easy access, being just a one-minute walk from JR Matsuyama Station. It's across the intersection from the front of the station on the first floor of the Kisuke BOX Mall main building. It has a variety of baths including western Japan's largest carbonated bath and a cloudy dozing bath where you can relax and get comfortable in a half body bath, befitting a modern natural hot-spring resort. The spring water in the carbonated bath and Shigaraki pottery tubs is chloride spring water which greatly aids in the retention of heat. Most of the baths are fed by the free flowing Tsubaki-no-yu spring, a simple alkaline spring that's slightly radioactive. The high alkalinity has a great effect on your skin.

    I visited this public bath by making use of the waiting time for highway bus. The most of customers seem to be local people, and the atmosphere is quite different from that of Dogo Onsen Honkan. The...

    The Shikoku Matsuyama Dogo Onsen hotel is a long-established hot springs hotel located approximately three minutes’ walk from Dogo Onsen Station (on the Iyotetsu Jonan Line tram line). The hotel traces its origins back to a hot springs inn that was opened during the Kan’ei era (1624–1644), and which was famous for being patronized by leading literary figures connected with Matsuyama. Day visitors are welcome to use the hot springs facilities. The cypress-wood bath, where bathers can relax while enjoying the marvelous scent of Hinoki (cypress wood), and the two granite bathtubs (made using the Iyo region’s famous Oshima granite) are open to male bathers at certain times of day and female bathers at other times. Saunas and open-air baths are also available.

    We stayed here for a night and had a set Japanese dinner. I had high expectations of what a top quality Japanese restaurant would be like. Unfortunately while it was nicely presented with very...

    This famous hot-spring was once blessed by a visit from the 37th monarch of Japan, Empress Saimei. The baths have over 1,400 years of history and is fed by its own private spring, famous for resulting in outstandingly beautiful skin. The sodium - chloride - hydrogen carbonate cold mineral spring, is transparent but when mineral deposits appear it can have a white cloudy appearance. Day trips are the norm but there are ten limited lodgings available as well. Many pilgrims visiting 88 sacred places on the Shikoku Pilgrimage stop in after visiting Yokomine-ji Temple, the 60th temple, because of the difficulty of the route.

    I stayed two nights with my wife and daughter at Yunotani Onsen during the 2015 Saijo Matsuri (festival). We loved our stay here. The staff was so friendly and really took special care of us. They...
