Where are the oldest aikido dojos in the world?

Lately I've visited the NY Aikikai dojo. It was established in the 1960s and operates in the same location for many years.
It made me wonder what are the oldest, continuously operating, aikido dojos in the world and where are they located?
I can think of four such dojos In Japan:
* the Aikikai hombu dojo in Tokyo
* the Iwama (Ibaraki) dojo
* the Kumano Juku dojo in Shingu, where Michio Hikitsuchi sensei used to teach.
* Gessoji dojo in Tokyo, where Hiroshi Tada sensei still teaches.

What other old aikido dojos do you know?
