A little 'traditional' gem
My partner and I had a great time at Dougoya. Our experience in such a traditional manner (tatami room, yukata, futon, onsen, simple breakfast) made our stay memorable. Thanks to the owner and his staff :)

We had a lovely time at this hotel. It has a bit of a hostel vibe with the shared toilets and showers, although it was all impeccably clean and we never had to wait for a turn. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was basic but filling and the coffee was really nice. The ryokan is an easy tram ride out of the centre to Dōgo, where the famous onsen is. (I would greatly recommend going there too and having the tea and sweets after your bath! It felt very luxurious!)

Beautiful traditional inn located within the historic Dogo area. We had a large tatami room with futon which we were hoping for. Lovely breakfast provided. Didn't know that there was a small onsen (bath) at the inn until we got there, ran out of time to use it but we went to another fantastic one nearby. Would definitely stay here again, thanks for your hospitality and beautiful building.

Loved it.
Very good-value if you don't mind sharing bathrooms - Dogo Onsen and Asuka-no-yu around the corner for bathing opportunity anyway and you can wear yukatas and slippers provided by Dougoya to wear around town. Our actual tatami room was very spacious and peaceful. Japanese breakfast extremely simple, hot rice, misoshiru, pickles, tea and coffee, served in a functional kitchen, but you are welcome to bring extra food to supplement. Staff were wonderfully kind and charming. We'd go back any time.

We absolutely loved this Ryokan! It is a beautiful building, of historical Japanese style. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the hospitality superb. It is located within walking distance of the Dogo Onsen and affiliated shopping area plus the local streetcar is nearby too. The hot waters of the Ryokan's onsen are from the same source as the Dogo Onsen so thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of bathing 'in house'. If you are looking for a traditional, non-Western style of accommodation, we definitely recommend this Ryokan. We hope to return for another visit too!
