     Leave your car at the parking next to the Dogo Onsen Honkan was the first went in the beginning is the Dogo Park.  Hill to the park itself is a water castle ruins. Convenience is the town of Dogo, once stood the Castle Hill is on the lookout. There were traces of the Castle at the time, such as trenches and earthworks. Even if there is water Castle moat, moat of water lilies flower was beautiful.

    It was a hot day, Park is surprisingly cool and was resurrected. Because the Guide as a historic site was running! Too much looking I'm sorry. Observation deck at the top was a good location overlooking the city.

    The park is on ancient ruins-Yuzu Ki 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

    A great park close to Dogo Onsen. It has a. It of history, good open spots, a playground for kids, a moat with koi and turtles, and a fair amount of trails. Good for all seasons!
