Being the oldest onsen in Japan, I definitely think this is THE place to go. the bath water is a hot 40C and after you've had a nice bath, you are greeted with tea and cookies in the tea room. You can also check out where the Emperor used to take his baths.

This public bath is one of the oldest onsen in town with a very interesting building. The onsen experience itself was not my best one in Japan. I thought the onsen lacked ventilation, was over crowded and too hot! Oh well... at least I can say I went.
The onsen opens at 6.30am every morning to the sound of a drum beating.
The main public bath is on the first and second floors of the building. This bath is called Kami-no-Yu.

There consist of 4 route cause, Ohenro-san's pass (I mentioned on Japan page), Setokaze mountain pass, the castle's ruins, temples. Total points are 28. If you want going around all of them, you need 2 days at least. I think it's the best hiking course in Matsuyama. You can leave the stamps setting each point (next page's pic) on this notebook (you can get it at the information center in Dougo). These stamps are carved haiku (Japanese short poetry). It would be your fondest memory.

This path, alongside the Ehime Prefecture Folk and Culture Hall is studded with monuments engraved with haikus made by haiku poets from Matsuyama.
This leads to a new pastime of 'haiku spotting'.

The museum inside the castle is really worth visiting.The museum holds many feudal things like armors and weapons. Most of them belonged to the Matsudeira-clan.

Address: At the top of Katsuyama-hill
In the Dogo area, and up a large number of steps, is Isaniwa Jinja.
If you're in the area, it's well worth a look. You can see the castle across town.

The shopping arcade is a good place to spend some time on a rainy day. Here you can find restaurants, cafés, shops and the famous multicoloured gambling parlors.
