the perfect example of a place that has everything, but you'll never want to go there again
Jan 2019
THE GOOD: The hot spring water is very good quality, creamy, nice on your skin. Place is kept very clean, has large relaxing halls, window walls, nice view. Excellent steam sauna. Quite a few pools for bathing. Staff was very nice. They work hard! THE BAD: Huge crowds, chlorine, people sleeping and snoring, homeless feeling, very small space. Being the only good bath in a large area, it's crazy busy. No, I don't think there are ANY moments when you have any less than 15 women in any pool. Pools are small, and the bathing area is extremely small for the crowd. In fact, the entire bathing area, with all the pools, is about half of what I've seen in any normal onsen that sports so many types of baths. The carbonated pool had, along my two hours there, 6-8 women crowding in a 2x2.5 meters. Because of the huge crowd, they release a lot of chlorine. Real onsen is only in three of the 7 or 8 pools- and those are not big enough for the crowd (people are mostly locals who know which pools are really good). In the relaxation hall, people were sleeping and snoring, some really horribly. There was no feeling of relaxing or enjoyment. Nor did it feel clean, after all: pools had inevitably hair- with so many people, relaxing rooms felt almost like a homeless center because of the manner in which people sleep. In short, even though the potential is there and they work hard to keep it well, unfortunately, the crowds are overwhelming and it turns everything opposite to relaxing and enjoyment. Unless you live there and have no other place to go, I do not recommend this place at this time. Not unless they expand and manage it better.

This onsen is close to Tama Hills Recreation Area. From the gate, it's less than 10 minutes (walking). The onsen has parking available. Also, it's about 5 minutes from Minami-Tama station on the JR line.

Great onsen. In one weekend, I came here four times. The busiest times were during the late afternoon and evenings. Saturday afternoon between 3:00-4:00pm was extremely busy. I had to wait about 10 minutes for an available shower. The different baths were very crowded. Friday evening around 9:00pm wasn't bad. The best times were both Saturday and Sunday mornings between 7:00-9:00am.

On weekdays, the entrance fee is ¥800. On weekends, the fee is ¥950. A towel set (wash cloth and bath) is ¥250. On weekdays, the hot bath hours are from 9:00-1:00am with last call at midnight. On weekends and public holidays, the hot bath hours are from 7:00-1:00am with the last call at midnight.

Upon entering the onsen, guests are required to remove their shoes. There is a locking storage area for your shoes. After securing your shoes and removing the key, you exchange your shoe storage key for your onsen barcode bracelet. Using your barcode bracelet, you pay (charge) for additional services to include massages, food and beverages using the bracelet. No need to carry money around the onsen. Just "charge" it to your bracelet. You'll pay for your services prior to departing. Then, you'll receive your shoe storage key in return for the barcode bracelet.

The locker room has lockers roomy enough for a large backpack. The vanity room has about 10 hairdryers, facial tissue, cotton buds, and face lotion. There are two types of face lotion. Unfortunately, the bottles didn't have an English translation on the back. There are a few lighted, magnifying mirrors available. Great for plucking eyebrows. There is a vending machine with assorted amenities available for purchase.

The shower area is quite large. Shampoo, conditioner and body wash are available at each station. The back of the bottles have English so no challenge with trying to figure out what was body wash vs shampoo.

Also, in the shower area are two saunas. One sauna has eucalyptus vaporizing in the air and a salt scrub area. The other sauna is a standard sauna. There are several baths inside: cold water, mineral, milky, carbonate, and jacuzzi. Outside has two mineral baths, a standard hot water bath and three private cypress wood baths. Rip especially enjoyed the private cypress bath. To achieve balance, your body should be in the hot water while your arms and legs dangle comfortably outside the tub. On Sunday, the standard hot water bath had apples floating in it. The apples smelled great.

Massages are available but we didn't take advantage of the specials. After visiting the onsen, there are several areas to relax and lounge around. There is a room for smokers to indulge. There is a restaurant and gift shop available on the first floor. Barber shop on the second floor.

Once again, this a great onsen. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff didn't speak English but everyone was very friendly and hospitable.

The facility is clean and nicely equipped with clean large bath. Outdoor 露天風呂 roten buro does not have superb views, but wind is cool and beautify. Restaurant has not authentic but a good food for price 値ごろでお得感はあります。 the restaurant is not always full but serving is bit slow. 配膳が遅いので、グループの食事のタイミングが、少しおかしい感じでした。

We arrived fatigued from our flight and left feeling refreshed and relaxed. This is a wonderful Japanese experience not to be missed. Our son who is living in Japan took us as he is a regular visitor and thinks it is one of the best Onsens in Tokyo. Easy to get to from the station only about 5 minutes walk. Shoes are removed on arrival and the locker key with your shoes becomes your deposit for a bracelet. This bracelet then becomes your charge currency with everything being scanned then able to be paid for on leaving, negating the need to pay as you go. You also hire a towel set at this point. The bathing area is divided for male & females and even if you don't speak Japanese just follow what others do. The locker room allows you to leave your clothes and belongings and the key can also be added to your wrist. Everyone is naked and all shapes and sizes - nobody seems to pay any attention so easy to leave inhibitions behind. Firstly one showers in one of the many cubicle areas each with shampoo, conditioner and bath wash (written in English) so easy to know the difference. No towels in the baths and often ladies sported in some fashion on their heads! There are inside and outside baths and all different and worth trying. One hot tub called the fruit bath had giant grapefruit on the day of our visit. The mineral spas and Jacuzzi were invigorating and the change in temperatures from inside to outside much appreciated. There were 2 sauna, one hot & dry and the steam sauna had salt provided for exfoliation. Once finished the area adjacent the locker space had hairdryers and spots to sit and do your makeup, also providing tissues, cotton buds and creams After there are lounges (comfortable deck style chairs) to relax on, and an opportunity to have a haircut or massage. There is also a great "cafeteria" style restaurant with a nice selection of tasty food. A fabulous experience and great way to spend the afternoon or evening.

One of the best Onsen in Tokyo metropolitan area. Clean, spacious, good verity of baths. Don't expect gourmet meal but the food service is not bad for this type of places.

I was visiting my Inagi, so I decided to take one day to visit this hot springs which was built about 10 years ago. On weekdays, it costs 800 yen for the bath which is an ok price

There were lots of difference bath as well as outside bath. It was funny that there was a TV in the sauna.

I ordered Korean skin pealing treatment which was about 3700 yen. Overall it was good but they were really rough. And they spoke in Korean language amongst each other which wasn’t polite. After all, we are in Japan.
I also had 60 minute body massage and treatment which cost extra 8000 yen or so. This was also quite nice. I fell asleep coz it felt so good.

There was a big cafeteria but I didn’t eat there. Food looked good.

There were like 50 people in the woman’s bath on a Tuesday morning so I would assume that weekends are totally packed.

I had a good time and I would go back again. But I wish the front desk personnel would be a bit more friendly and polite. After all, that’s how Japanese people are thought to be.
