We had a rest day in Matsuyama with its castle on the hill.
The streets of Dogo, around the onsen are full of tourist in their brightly coloured bathrobes and wooden sandals from the various hotels in the area, just out their bath and doing a bit of shopping.
A specialty here is a dish with 5 different coloured noodles. We chose ramen, twice at the same little restaurant. We spent a second night at the Matsuyama Youth Hostel.
