Oedo Onsen Monogatari

Travel Guide

Oedo Onsen Monogatari is a natural hot spring theme park in the Odaiba area near Tokyo Bay. It combines two of Japan's favorite loves -- superfluous theme parks and the onsen hot spring baths -- into one accessible complex.

Opened in 2003, the Ooedo Onsen Monogatari is much more than a bath house. Extravagantly decorated to transport customers to the Edo era, Oedo Onsen Monogatari is designed in pseudo-traditional Japanese style, with old-fashioned shops and restaurants lining the main street. Shows occur sporadically, including comedy and music performances. Visitors can even try their hand at old-time games, including archery and scooping up goldfish from a tub, and eat old-time resort town snacks.

Of course, the main attraction is the hot springs themselves. Visitors can experience 14 varieties of baths including indoor baths using water from natural hot springs that gush up from the source 1,400 meters underground. There is a co-ed outdoor foot bath area, with many shallow pools spread through a traditional Japanese garden. This area is beautiful and relaxing, and can be enjoyed even in cold or rainy weather (there are umbrellas as well as heavier coats provided to wear on top of your yukata). For an additional fee, there is even a foot bath filled with small fish that will nibble the dead skin off your feet, leaving them smooth and soft.

Everyone from children to adults can spend the day strolling about in casual yukata (a thin, summer-style kimono) in the park. Guests can choose their yukata from 19 different designs at check-in corner.

After soaking, guests can return to the courtyard area and enjoy a wide range of additional features, such as a tatami relaxation room and a variety of massage services available at an additional cost. Also available for an additional fee are sand baths and rock slab baths. There are even accommodations to spend the night.

This is a perfect place for tourists and people who have never experienced an onsen before to get their feet wet, so to speak. A first public bath experience can be an uncomfortable experience for visitors from other countries. Let’s face it: “Is this where I get naked?” is not a question that lends itself to pantomime very well. However, there are many signs, pamphlets, and directions provided in English to explain the process from beginning to end.
