Dogo Onsen snap photos

道後温泉 アイキャッチ画像

[Introduction]

I traveled to Matsuyama, the capital of Ehime Prefecture, for 4 days and 3 nights. The main purpose of this trip was to watch Yuru-chara Grand Prix 2016 on the last 2 days. My favorite Milan, which is the mascot character of Ehime Prefecture, did not participate in the contest, but entertained other local mascot characters and the audience as a host of the event with Barysan, Imabari city’s mascot character. I also participated in a PR event for the Grand Prix and did some sightseeing. In this article, I will write about Dogo Onsen as part of Day 1.

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Dogo Onsen as part of Day 1. The main purpose of this trip was to watch Yuru-chara Grand Prix, so I didn’t do sightseeing so much. However, whenever I visited Dogo Onsen, I found it very nice. I traveled to Dogo Onsen for 3 days and 2 nights in January of this year, so if you are interested in Dogo Onsen, please see my past articles 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Mican Center at Ehime prefectural government office.
