A nonchalant ambience reigns in this small spa where visitors don theiryukata to wander from their hotels to the souvenir shops. Dogo Onsen is one of the oldest spas in Japan. Its alkaline springs (42°C) are mentioned in theNihon Shoki (720), or Chronicles of Japan, and were patronised by numerous emperors and eminent historical figures. Most notably, the baths are the setting of the novelBotchan (1906) by writer Natsume Soseki, an extremely famous work that Japanese schoolchildren read as part of the curriculum.
