IS JAPAN COOL? TOKYO
Ooedo Onsen Monogatari
1. Japan’s first hot spring theme park located in Odaiba. Although this facility is a hot spring spa, it mainly caters to day-trip visitors. It also provides space for sleep breaks and lodgings.
2. Streets inside the facility recreate Old Edo, and guests can wear yukata (casual summer kimono). You can enjoy target-shooting games and sushi bars, just like at Japanese evening festivals in shrines.
3. Natural hot spring water is used for the big baths (separate facilities for men and women). Since this facility offers many bathing choices including indoor and outdoor pools, visitors should avoid taking long baths (otherwise you’ll get dizzy). To refer to general bathing etiquette, please see sentoh.
4. There are also footbaths, sand baths, rock salt baths, and other spa facilities for enjoyment by men and women together. Fish therapy — not very widely available in Japan — is also popular.
5. Access: Via Yurikamome Line. Free bus service from Tokyo and Shinagawa Stations is also available and convenient.
