Tucked into a little corner inside a side street, this is not an easy place to find unless you have Google maps to help you. Whilst the staff there has limited English skills, they were certainly very helpful when showing how to use the ticketing machines (which was also fairly intuitive). Though I'm not sure if it's a true onsen,... More

This public bath is in Asakusa so very convenient for visitors to go in. USD5 set includes admission fee, towel, razor and a toothbrush. So you need not bring anything with you for bathing.You can order them one by one but costs more. The hot spring is not volcano related but boiled subterranean water mixed with leaves,grasses in the paleozoic... More

Though it's five minutes' walk from Asakusa Station. Clean, functional but a modest little. If you've come without the necessary toiletries, there are sets available for ¥150, and bath towels can be borrowed for ¥60. Allowed tattoos!!!

We are onsen lovers. Its water is smooth and it makes us feels good after the soaks compared to the neighbouring onsens. Price is reasonable too. Highly recommended for a soak in asakusa ☺

Legit. Real onsen water (aka hot springs, not just hot tap water). It's brown but doesn't have an odor and left My skin feeling great. I have a sizable side tattoo, and no one gave me trouble. I even chatted a little bit with one of the Japanese ladies. I did get stared at, but that happened to me in... More

My husband and I visited this onsen during our first trip in Japan. Although I cannot tolerate hot water for long, I really enjoyed. it was a real Japanese experience since I was the only European in the bath. Truly recommended !

(At first, I must be honest. Ranking sentoh/onsen ever I’ve used, Mikoku-yu > Daikoku-yu > Saitoh-yu > Jakotsu-yu > Kanda-AquaHouse-Edoyuu > Kotobuki-yu > Yakushi-yu. All of them are worth our daily using. Even Yakushi-yu, not bad.) The Onsen has a long long history... But, its falicities are far from old-ashioned, looking like having grown old. There's a erectric bath for... More

Nice basic public bath. They had body soap and shampoo when I was there. There is also a washing machine for ¥300. My razor was stolen while I was in the bath so you might want to be careful.

I recently spent 48 hours in Tokyo and was looking for a typical, local Onsen experience in the city (as I didn't have enough time get out of town for the really spectacular ones). I visited Jakotsuyu Onsen after spending a cold afternoon exploring the suburb Asakusa and it was the perfect way to end the day. On entering shoes... More

I loved everything about this place. It was well run, clean & a great break from my tiring day. Make sure to have milk form one of the vending machines at the place after your hot soak. The neighborhood vibe of this place is amazing & try the Electric bath. It's a bit tough to find for new comers so... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
