Ō-Edo Onsen Monogatari (Ō-Edo Onsen Story) information
Public bathing in onsen (hot springs) is a Japanese obsession, and, believe it or not, they’ve managed to find an actual hot spring 1400m below Tokyo Bay. Of course, Ō-edo Onsen is so much more than just a mere hot springs complex. Something of Disneyland-meets-health-spa, this bathing theme park re-creates an old Japanese downtown indoors, selling old-timey foods, toys and souvenirs. Wander around in your yukata (light cotton kimono) and you’ll fit right in. Sure it’s kitschy, but what the hey… Bathing opportunities (most separated by gender) include indoor and outdoor pools, a foot bath, a bed of hot stones and the opportunity to be buried in hot sand. Massage services are available, as are relaxation spaces in case all that pampering makes you sleepy. Bathing products and rental of towels and yukata are included. Admission prices are highest between 11am and 6pm, and lowest between 5am and 8am; there’s a surcharge of ¥1700 per person between 2am and 5am. Visitors with tattoos will be denied admission.
