Two years ago I had my first onsen here, and came back to Tokyo especially to come here again. It didn’t disappoint- its truly a relaxing and wonderful place. It's a bit of a complicated system, but the best advice is to watch the locals and follow their lead. You firstly are given an armband that has a barcode on... More

Yes, you can find better onsens outside of Tokyo at Onsen resorts and ryokans, but you won't find a better one that is close to the main city centers in Tokyo and is foreigner friendly. It takes about 50 minutes to get to the Telecom station on the Yurikamome line from the Roppongi/Shibuya area. This is a hot spring complex... More

We had a really nice visit here. I was a little nervous about not spending the time together with my boyfriend, because of the seperate baths for women and men, but there is a big area for men and women before you enter the baths. Here you can spend time together, get massages, eat, take pictures and spend time outdoor... More

This place was very interesting, it is very unique with many facilities. However be prepared to bathe with many naked Japanese women/men depending on your gender. I found it a very different experience but felt uncomfortable in the hot springs as i found i was the only westerner in the facility and had a few stares and giggles. But if... More

Excellent place with so many facilities, very good dining area with a good variety of food. Bathing there is awesome, other facilities with extra cost are there too.

Be sure and read a little on the Onsen culture of Japan prior to visiting so you are somewhat aware of what to expect (no tattoos & nudity required just to name a couple of "must knows") BUT otherwise jump in head first to this totally true Japanese experience! I encountered the coolest spa in all of Tokyo with both... More

My guide suggested we go to this hot spring and I'm glad I did because it was the most non-touristy thing I did in Tokyo. There were very few Westerners and I was on my own because my guide was female and she was on her side of the hot springs but it didn't matter. You'll soak and steam and... More

We were the only whites around. It was such a surreal immersion in kitsch and also, beyond the arcade, a chance to experience onsen culture in an accessible to westerners way (and a way that won't bore the kids to tears.) the metro out is fun too.

We found the onsen by accident when searching for information about the Odaiba area. We went in the evening after a long day going around the sights like Palette Town and the Panasonic Centre, so it was a very welcome relaxing retreat for our feet. It was a little odd at first getting used to the different rules and how... More

Visiting Tokyo for the first time? Don't have time to go to the other cities of Japan? Want an onsen experience? Then this should be the place to goto. Yes, it is very touristy... but there are also several of local japanese people who go to this place too. It's very clean, the staff are very helpful, and the attractions... More
