More about Yamatoya Honten (Dogo)

The warmth and aesthetics of the Juraku wall of Yamatoya Honten create a unique and different atmosphere from that of the bustling hot spring district of Dogo Onsen.
Established in 1868, this authentic Japanese-style inn inheriting the tradition and culture of Matsuyama comes complete with a Noh stage where guests can enjoy captivating traditional performances every day. Only a minute on foot from one of the oldest hot spring facilities in Japan, the Dogo Onsen Honkan, Yamatoya Honkan accommodates first timers to even the seasoned travelers alike.

[Hot Spring]
Dogo Onsen is mentioned in 'Nihon Shoki', the second oldest historical record of ancient Japan, and is said to be the oldest hot spring in the country. The alkaline spring is known for its high beatifying effect on skin.

[Guest Room]
All guest rooms feature Sukiya-zukuri architecture (a type of Japanese architecture based on tea house aesthetics) and Juraku walls. Experience the sense of space and lighting calculated to create a relaxing ambience.

[Noh Stage Experience]
Get up on stage and learn from the Noh instructor about the traditional theatrical form, starting from the structure of the stage to the details of the masks. Participants will also have the chance to play some of the instruments. This can only be experienced at Yamatoya Honten.
Time: From 17:30 (30 min.)
JPY 1,000 per guest

[Maibayashi Dance Performance]
Get entertained by the traditional Maibayashi dance performed by the instructors.
Time: From 18:15 (5 min.)

    We stayed one night at the hotel. The location of the hotel is just next to the historical Dogo Onsen. We took a walk along the dogo onsen area with a lot of souvenir shops around. We enjoyed the onsen within the hotel, particularly the outdoor ones durin

    員工的服務態度非常有禮, 帶領我們上房之後還會送熱茶給我們, 留下來遂一講解酒店的設施, 用餐時間, 溫泉的禮儀等等, 非常細心。晚餐很豐富也很美味, 相比之下早餐較為遜色, 但也非常好吃。風呂只有三個池, 選擇及大細比想像中少。地點很方便, 由市內電車道後溫泉站沿著商店街走過去只需5分鐘, 由道後溫泉本館到酒店拐個彎一分鐘就到。很值得讚賞的是入住時間比其他酒店長, 中午12時已經可以check in, 翌日中午12時才check out, 時間很充裕, 整個住宿體驗都很好很可以放鬆, 絕對會介紹給朋友!

    就在道後溫泉本館旁,位置十分好,本次純住宿不含餐食,單人房很不錯,還有按摩椅可使用,服務還算好,因為住單人房不含餐也不太需要服務人員,溫泉有點失望,不大,露天風呂更是小,而且沒有風景,只有小小庭院可看,除此之外都還不錯。
