Hondani-Onsen Hot Spring

Famous hot spring known as one of the three great hot springs of Iyo, along with Dōgo and Nibukawa.

A hot spring with a distinguished history where Emperors Jomei- and Saimei-tennō are said to have bathed. Honkan main building has indoor baths and family baths, and the Shinkan new building has indoor baths and open-air baths. The clear, colorless baths, often called “bijin-no-yu” (hot spring of beauty), will let you feel refreshed in both body and mind. It is a popular spot for higaeri-onsen (hot spring to visit during the day rather than spending the night). In the restaurant, visitors can enjoy fresh locally-caught fish.
