I traveled to Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture for three days and two nights in late April. This was my sixth trip to Ehime Matsuyama and I was able to enjoy the trip as my first travel since I changed my camera and lens. In this article, I will write about night view of Dogo Onsen Hot Spring as part of Day 2.

Dogo Onsen Hot Spring CHAHARU (茶玻瑠)
Following the previous post, I will continue to go around Dogo Onsen Hot Spring. First, I checked in “Dogo Onsen Hot Spring CHAHARU (茶玻瑠)” where I will stay this night.
At the lobby.
Here is my room.
There was an observation lounge on the top floor.
I will have an early dinner at “Uotake (魚武)”.
“Uotake (魚武)” was located near Dogo Onsen Honkan in the Dogo Shopping Arcade.
“Uotake (魚武)” serves local cuisine of Ehime prefecture.
I ordered a beef dish.
Evening View of Dogo Onsen
After dinner, I will take pictures of evening and night scene at Dogo Onsen Hot Spring.
I will start to take evening photos at Dogo Onsen station. Unfortunately, the sky was gloomy.
Dogo Onsen station was renewed last November and Starbucks was opened there. I will visit it tomorrow.
“Asuka-no-yu(飛鳥乃湯泉)”. This was Dogo Onsen Annex and opened last December.
I changed color setting a little bit.
I passed through Dogo Shopping Arcade and went to Dogo Onsen Honkan.
Installation looked bright around this time.
There was a bear art work in the rear of Dogo Onsen Honkan.
Night View of Dogo Onsen
I moved to Dogo Onsen station again.
It became dark around this time.
I think lighted-up Dogo Onsen station was very attractive.
I will visit “Asuka-no-yu (飛鳥乃湯泉)” to take a bath the next day.
“Tsubaki-no-yu (椿の湯)” was also renovated last year and an art work was exhibited.
I will take night photos of Dogo Onsen Honkan as the last spot.
As I mentioned before, the installation work made Dogo Onsen Honkan more attractive.
By the way. I didn’t use a tripod so far and took all of the photos by hand-held shooting.
Here are only photos I took with the tripod.
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.
