The park is on ancient ruins-Yuzuki Castle, there are plenty of walkways to discover, there also the oldest hot spring in the country-Yugama, this was used before any of the onsens were built. Climb to the top of the park where there's an observation point, there are some really nice views there including a view of Matsuyama Castle

Dogo Park is near Dogo Onsen. In this site once stood a castle, but now there is nothing left. It is a nice place to take a walk maybe after taking a bath. The old Yugama (exit of hot water at Onsen) of Dogo Onsen Honkan can be seen in this park.

Summar is not the Best time to visit the Dogo Park but walking inside is relaxing you and giving another perception of the world.

Situated inside the Dogo Kouen Park, a few hundred meters from the Dogo Onsen, this little museum gives you some explanations about the medieval castle of the clan of Kono. The staff are so friendly, dedicated and happy to have foreign visitors. We received delicious clementines, the local icon!

The central portion of the park is believed to be an ancient burial mound for some very important person from the area, but not much else seems to be known about its origins. The buildings in the park are reconstructions of an ancient castle, and the (free!) museum housed in them is quite fascinating, dealing with the excavation of the... More

We were here whilst the cherry trees were blooming. Local folks were sitting under the trees enjoying hanami even though there was a slight rain falling. We had little time and just walked on the paths enjoying the park before our return tram ride to Matsuyama. We did not have time to visit the castle ruins.

The gardens here are nice. The castle ruins are not very exciting. If you're in the area, stop by, but don't expect much. We were lucky to have a private tea ceremony here and that was great.

So you're in Dogo Onsen and you have a 3 year old who has seen way too much of the inside of a hotel room or train this is the park for you. The playground area here is top notch! I wish this was my local park. Lots of different slides, swings, and a sand pit. After playing there's the... More
