Dive into the captivating world of Japan's oldest spa town, Dōgo Onsen, through an engaging in-app audio tour that unveils a history peppered with poets, priests, and tales from the pleasure quarters. Suited for history buffs and cultural enthusiasts, this journey offers a window into the soul of a place where tradition and storytelling permeate the very steam of its hot springs. The audio guide navigates from the Tourist Information Centre to Hōjōen Plaza, charting a richly historic path through Dōgo Park, the bustling former red-light district, and the remarkable Dōgo Onsen Honkan. Lavishly embroidered with personal anecdotes and cultural insights, this tour takes you along a route that is as visually enchanting as it is historically profound. Beginning where visitors gather information and ending in the relaxation haven of Hōjōen Plaza, the path is lined with sensory experiences: from the sweet taste of traditional Botchan Dango to the echoes of an underground river, and the palpable history in ancient temples and shrines. Along the way, embrace the opportunity to witness a traditional brewery, uncover the roots of Japan's literary greatness, and soak in the visual tapestry of old meets new. Feel the spirit of samurais and poets and understand how Dōgo Onsen has been nurturing both body and soul for over a millennium. This self-guided expedition offers not just a walk but an immersion into a narrative filled with elegance, resilience, and the immortal charm of Japan's poetic past.
