Then, I returned to the hotel and the second day of my Ehime Matsuyama trip was over.


That’s it for the article about night view of Dogo Onsen Hot Spring as part of Day 2 of my Ehime Matsuyama trip.

There were lots of spots which were suitable for night photos at Dogo Onsen, including Dogo Onsen Honkan and Asuka-no-yu. This was my first trip after I changed my camera setting from “α7 II & SEL1635Z” to “α7 III & SEL1635GM” and I realized night photos with hand-held shooting became easier thanks to my new camera and lens 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Asuka-no-yu and Mican Room as part of Day 3.
