In the previous article, I wrote about Dogo Hot Spring main building during daytime, and in this article, I will write about illuminated Dogo Hot Spring main building in the evening.

Illumination has started from 5pm

The Dogo Hot Spring main building is illuminated in the evening all year round. When I visited it, the illumination started from around 5pm.

The sunset at that time was around 5:15pm, so the sky was still brighting when the light-up started.""

The Dogo Hot Spring main building was crowded with visitors in the evening.""

During a period of “Mika Ninagawa × Dogo Onsen DOGO ART 2015”, visitors are able to rent original colorful yukatas (Japanese bathrobe).

That’s it of the article about the illuminated Dogo Hot Spring main building. I like the Dogo Hot Spring main building during daytime, but the illuminated Dogo Hot Spring main building was also attracting. In particular, when I visted it, “Mika Ninagawa × Dogo Onsen DOGO ART 2015” was being held and the Dogo Hot Spring main building became more colorful due to its art work 🙂

Other art works of “Mika Ninagawa × Dogo Onsen DOGO ART 2015” were displayed at several places in Dogo area, and I will write about it in the next article. (To be continued)
