This was our best day in Tokyo. We made the trip by public transport from Shinjuku,( via Tachikawa and Haijima then onto the last stop on the Itsukaich line, followed by a bus trip from Mushashi Itsukaichi). Took about 2 hours to get there. A super trip, saw no other foreigners from Haijima onwards.
The area is mountainous and forested, with a stream flowing through it. Trout fishing is one of the local activities.
The spa was all I imagined a Japanese spa/ baths would be. An authentic experience well worth the trip. The baths cost all of 800 yen for 3 hours. There were 2 baths, one indoors and one outdoors overlooking the forest. Just beautiful!
Accommodation is available.
Highly recommend as a day trip. More
