Oedo Onsen Monogatari

Ooedo-Onsen-Monogatari, located in the popular Daiba area, opened in 2003 as Tokyo’s first and only onsen (hot springs) theme park. Inside the building, constructed in traditional Japanese style, there are baths fed by natural hot springs pumped from 1,400 meters underground, open-air baths perfect for enjoying fine weather or starry night skies, a foot bath set in a large Japanese-style garden, and plenty of other bathing facilities. There is also a re-creation of a traditional street from the days when Tokyo was called Edo to offer visitors an authentic onsen experience that is sure to be one of the highlights of their trip to Japan.

Choose your yukata

When you are in the hot springs, you will be naked. But after relaxing in the baths, you will put on the yukata of your choice and you will be able to go to the re-created Edo period area.

The baths

At Ooedo-Onsen-Monogatari, the biggest attraction is two baths brimming with completely natural hot-spring water pumped from a thermal spring 1,400 meters underground. Another five baths, filled with water adjusted to optimum temperatures, are sure to bring physical and mental relaxation for enhanced health and energy. Come and enjoy this unique experience in the heart of Tokyo, by yourself or with family or friends.

Ooedo-Onsen is Ooedo-Onsen-Monogatari’s namesake bath. Enjoy this bath, brimming with 100% natural hot-spring water, quietly by yourself or chatting with friends as you soak your way to utter relaxation.

This new bath was created for customers who want to enjoy bathing in richer water originating closer to the thermal spring source. The amber-colored water, with a consistency reminiscent of molten gold, has excellent warming properties. No one will feel chilled getting out of this bath!

Open-air baths

If you don’t want to stay inside, you can still enjoy the light of the sun outside while staying in the hot baths.

Foot bath

Once you’ve changed into your yukata, you can enjoy this foot bath during the day or the night. Believe me, it’s super relaxing.
