City of literature and onsen hot springs, with a splendid castle

Matsuyama Castle, the symbol of the city, is a well-preserved historical treasure established in 1602. The city also contains the Dogo Onsen hot spring, believed to be 3,000 years old and the nation’s oldest onsen. The streets between the Dogo Onsen tramway station and the main onsen building retain the delightful atmosphere of old Japan. This area is full of gift shops and restaurants. Matsuyama is known as a city of literature: Natsume Soseki set his famous novel “Botchan” here, and this was the birthplace of famous haiku poet Masaoka Shiki.
