This ancient fortification, part of the Hirayama Castle Coalition of Japan, was completed in 1627. Its turrets and other
parts destroyed by fire or bombardment over the centuries have been completely restored in the original wooden
construction and remains today in pristine condition just as it was. There is a fantastic birds-eye-view of Matsuyama
from the tower.

Dogo Onsen in the city of Matsuyama, on the island of Shikoku, is one of the oldest hot springs in Japan, with a history
stretching back over 3,000 years. The present building of the Dogo Onsen public bath was built in 1894. Built on three
levels for maximum capacity, the baths remain extremely popular and are usually crowded by users. Dogo retains the
feeling of a resort town, with guests from all over the country wandering the streets in 'yukata' robes after their bath.
Dogo is easily accessible by a tramcar from the central area of Matsuyama.
