The Botchan Karakuri Clock was built as a commemorative project for the 100th anniversary of the construction of the Dogo Onsen Main Building. It features a retro design based on the motif of the main building, and at certain times of the day, the characters familiar from Soseki Natsume's novel "Bo-Chan" begin to move to the music.
This monument is located just outside Dogo Onsen Station and is a familiar landmark and popular spot in the area.
