As our first visit to Japan, we had planned to try and visit an Onsen with all the "ceremony " that we had read n ed to be followed, so we decided after some extensive reading to try the Oedo-Onsen at Monogatari. Firstly it was quite a trek from our hotel in the Shinjuku area, of course the efficient rail... More

You leave your shoes in a locker near the door. At the counter, they give you a locker key with a bar code that you use for food and anything you buy inside, so you don't have to carry your wallet around. You then choose your yakata (like a cotton kimono) and belt from among several colors and combos, and... More

It's an Onsen theme park yes, but a very enjoyable one at that. Water piped in from hundreds of meters underground and outdoor bath area (no clothes and gender segregated) are wonderful. Common area where everyone is wearing their colorful light robes (provided with entrance) has food, drinks (full alcohol), snacks and games (video and carnival-like ones) that can all... More

Be wary If you have any tattoos you will be denied entry. Even the smallest ones. Me and my partner went and she's has a small tattoo on her hand and they turned us away.

Wonderful indoor and outdoor onsen experience. I love the outdoor wooden bucket onsen concept. Made me feel as if i was living in edo era. The orange jacket provided for guests to outdoor footbath was quite comfy during winter. A lot varieties of food offered. Surprisingly, not expensive and tasty too! Floor dining woth colourful yukata was a new experience... More

This onsen was enjoyable, and the size of it also made the experience a fun one. However, as I was alone, I felt this place might be a nice experience if you go with friends. While in smaller and older other onsen you might get the most relaxing time alone, Oedo Onsen Monogatari is designed for groups and families, making... More

Don't come here for relaxation - it's a theme park/fair ground with some hot baths. Crazy to see and ok for a few hours but for the price be sure you know why you're coming, more about food and arcade games than finding inner peace. That said, if you want accessible, everything being in English is very welcome when trying... More

This large bathing complex is located in Odaiba, artificially created island, and a monorail ride to it above Tokyo streest is a small adventure in itself. You should probably plan at least half a day to relax there. And yes - do not go at the weekend or during holidays. If you have a small tattoo you can get away... More

Spent about three hours here my first Onsen in Japan - Easy to get to a short walk from the monorail station, on entry you must place your shoes in the lockers provided before heading towards the counter to get your numbered/barcoded wrist band which is how everything is paid for while at the Onsen, before heading into the change...

Staying in Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
