I was skeptical of the “super onsens” in Tokyo so I took a chance and left the city to visit this onsen about 50mins from Shibuya Station. It was definitely worth the trip. I spent about 3 hours in the evening soaking in all the...More

Even though the building is across the street from a big grocery chain, and the outside is not so impressive, once signed up and inside the onsens, it is absolutely dreamy. It's almost like we were time travelling from what we see as Japanese past....More

A local onsen. Not a tourist trap. This is where the locals come to. It's "old school" but very clean. Nothing fancy, just a great place to soak, to think, to bathe, to relax, and to be cleansed. Also ate lunch here, which was DELISH!
