大和屋別荘 Yamatoya Besso

Yamatoya Besso / Ehime Matsuyama・Dogo 91


Dogo Onsen, beloved by many literary figures and poets throughout the ages.
Tucked away in the lively hot spring town is Yamatoya Besso, with a hideaway-like feel.

All guestrooms are spacious.
A hanging scroll written by a poet with roots in Aichi is displayed along with seasonal flowers.
The cuisine with a menu that changes daily is just another highlight of Yamatoya Besso.

After savoring the delicious dishes made with produce from the mountains and the seas of Setouchi, relax in the hot spring water that appear in various legends and folktales.
Enjoy an extraordinary stay at this long-established ryokan with traditional Japanese architecture.

Read more 湯上がりビール、アイスは、粋なサービスだなぁと思った。部屋もシンプルな作りで、部屋でも温泉が出るのは、すごくありがたかった。 ほとんど人とも会わず、静かで落ち着いた宿でのんびりゆっくりできた。大浴場は、2回行ったが、どちらとも貸切で、広々と仕えて大満足。 湯上がりビールが飲み放題で、お風呂→ビール、アイス→お風呂→ビールという贅沢なローテーションができたのが、嬉しかった。 ただアイスは子ども連れがたくさん食べたせいか、ほぼない状態で、補充して欲しかった。 カップルや家族で過ごすのにオススメな宿でした。 ありがとうございました。

After bathing beer and ice, I thought that it was a smart service. The room was simple and it was very nice to have a hot spring in the room. I was able to relax in a quiet and calm inn with few people. I went to the public bath twice, but both were private and served spaciously and were very satisfied. I was happy to have a luxurious rotation of bath-beer, ice-bath-beer-beer with all-you-can-drink beer. However, I wanted ice cream to be replenished, almost because it was eaten by children. It was a recommended inn for couples and families. Thank you very much.

The other day, I was indebted as a hotel for traveling alone. We stayed after a long drive from Shiga to Matsuyama, so it was nice to be able to relax at the inn. I was healed by the smile of the person in charge of the room. From the early morning, we jogged through the city of Matsuyama to Matsuyama Castle and had the best luxury of healing the tired legs at Dogo Onsen.

At Yamatoya Villa, which I visited for the first time in a long time, I received warm hospitality while my nostalgic memory revived. The meal was delicious that would delight even early autumn. It was also a time to feel the persistence of a historic inn without claiming too much. The only disappointment was that there was a white plastic bag left in the open-air bath that seems to have been forgotten. I think it was never before. Still, I would like to revisit if there is another opportunity.
