We visited the onsen connected to this hotel, Utopia Tamara, while in Nagoya. Both the men's and women's areas had at least 10 different baths, some inside and some outside. You can find the onsen by taking the JR train to Kasadera, taking the station exit towards the sports arena, and then heading for the large neon sign of a walrus bathing. The walrus sign is on top of the hotel building connected to the onsen. When you enter, head to the right to take off your shoes and put them in a locker. Then go to the front desk, where you pay and receive your wristband that has a key for a locker in the shower area. You'll also receive a small and a large towel. The onsen are separate for men and women. Normal Japanese bathing etiquette (e.g. clean yourself before you hop in, no clothing) apply. As well as the baths, there are saunas, a snow room (snow coming down from the ceiling!), a mist room with salt (I assume to scrub yourself ?), and baths with jets of bubbles. I think we paid around ¥1,800 for two - I'm not sure if the time of day alters the price. We had a great time, and we were ready for a sleep afterwards. Be aware that trains from the Kasadera station only go about every half hour late at night.
