The Legend of Dogo Onsen. This beautiful Time Lapse is made by Brad Kremer, it’s just a great masterpiece of work. Located in Matsuyama, Dōgo Onsen is the oldest bath house in Japan. It was built in 1894 and celebrates its 120th anniversary last year. The bath house was built on the site of a hot spring with a history stretching back over 1,000 years. While Dōgo is largely engulfed in the suburban sprawl of modern-day Matsuyama, the area around Dōgo retains the feeling of a resort town, with guests from all over the country wandering the streets in yukata robes after their bath.
