Tokyo’s Top Onsens For A Good Soak

Feeling the winter chills and looking for something to warm up with? Take a look at our top-rated Tokyo onsens where you can shower, steam and soak all your worries away – ‘cept the one about being naked in front of a bunch of strangers… For everyone else, grab a towel, embrace your birthday suit, and get ready to say ‘spaaa’…


Five floors of rain showers, massages, scrubs, steam area, outdoor onsen and roller coaster park views, all perf-posi’d in the city centre. Basic add-on services, but blessedly a modesty towel and comfy yukata for strolling around the common areas comes included.

The onsen experience without leaving town. Smaller and more local than the big tourist bathhouses, and sourcing from the natural, mineral-rich springs deep beneath Tokyo. In- and outdoor tubs, stone sauna, spa, restaurant, and a cherry tree, natch. Bring your birthday suit and leave modesty at home.

Niwa no Yu

Zen-sational retreat nestled in Kenzo Kosugi-designed gardens. Sit back and relax in his n’ hers baths, or brave hearts can plump for the co-ed Finnish sauna, plus Jacuzzi and swimming pool.
