Do you like Onsen? Onsen is Japanese hot spring.
Today I would like to deliver another report of Oedo Onsen, famous hot spring facility in Tokyo. Oedo Onsen has opened 10 years ago near Odaiba which is a sightseeing spot near Tokyo.
You take monorail Yurikamome Line from Shinbashi Station and get off at Tel-com Center Station. Especially on the weekends it gets crowded.
Let’s go inside.
This is how the facility looks like. It was night when I visited.
There is Onsen for dogs too! Wow!
You take off your shoes at entrance and put it in the shoes box. Many lockers are prepared for visitors.
Choose on box to put and lock after putting your shoes in.
One thing you need to note is that people with tattoos or drunk cannot go in.
Many people are waiting in line. Facilities besides onsen are Japanese too, enjoyable visually.
This is Tatami flooring.
English brochures are prepared too, don’t worry if you don’t understand Japanese well.There are many foreign visitors too.
This is the reception, you need to buy a ticket.
