“Hot spring theme park”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Oedo hot spring theme park is located in Odaiba, just take yurikamome line and stop at Telecom center station. It's only a few minutes walk to the hot spring place. I purchased a discount ticket at family mart using the computer machine.
When you first go in, they give you a handband and let you pick your yukata design to wear. Then you go into the locker room to change and store your personal items. Make sure you have your yukata on when you leave the locker room because it leads to the public area. This is the area they decorated like edo time period with games and shops. Also you can purchase food at the restaurants; the price was fair.
There is an outdoor foot hot spring you can go to. It's a nice patio with shallow pool of hot spring, and it's free. They lined the pool with reflexology stone walk, so it might hurt a little.
The main hot spring area is by gender and has another locker room to store your yukata. The pool area is spacious with multiple different color, temperature pools and showering area. There is an outdoor bath that's nice when you feel too hot.

Overall a pretty fun and relax place to spend a few hours. It can be a little crowded depending on the time you visit. Still highly recommended especially after a whole day of walking in Japan!

“Great for a 'Japanese' experience”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

On entry, everyone is given a yukata to wear so after changing and entering the indoor 'street festival' area, it feels like you've stepped back in time. Everyone is dressed up in traditional yukata and since we were there on a Saturday night it was busy with lots of young people enjoying a night out. Entry after 6pm is cheaper 1,480 yen instead of 1,980 yen.

“Nice place for complete leisure and relaxation”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

This was my first onsen experience in Japan and it was good.

First transportation. There is a free shuttle that picks up customers in the city. We were staying at the Shingawa Prince Hotel and one of the pick up points was behind the Shingawa Station. Might be disadvantageous for those who don't read Japanese as the signage in the van/coaster is Japanese. Was just lucky that my friend is Japanese. However, there is a station in the onsen area in Odaiba (a bit of walking) so a train ride is also an option.

Standard activity upon entry: put your shoes on locker, register on front desk. You get to choose the design of your Yukata and that added to the little thrill. Then you go to a locker to dump the rest of your things and then enter this hall that has a dining section, games section and shop section. You walk around and anything that interests you, you can purchase using your magnetic bracelet. Your bill is summarized there.

After you finish entertaining yourself in the hall, time to bathe! You enter another locker area and there you take off everything -- and i mean everything. Not for the shy as you will be walking around naked. Various types of hot pools with different mineral contents. there is also a dry sauna as well as body scrub areas. There is also an outdoor pool where you can relax al fresco!

Once finished, you put on your clothes and pay at the counter using the bills summarized on your bracelet.

While i find the onsens of Hakone and Hokkaido more spectacular, if in Tokyo, you can always rely on this onsen.

“Onsen experience - "a day in paradise"”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Your Japanese experience would not be complete without a visit to an onsen (hot springs bath). Oedo-Onsen-Monogatari is within reach from Tokyo and will give you that unforgettable experience. After days of touring, sight seeing, a day relaxing in hot springs spa at Oedo-Onsen was truly "our day in paradise".

What scares most foreign visitors is the thought of having to bathe fully naked in front of others. Don't let that bothers you, you can use the small towel (face washer size) to cover one's private part while walking around. And when you immerse fully into the hot, soothing water that, you will truly appreciate the relaxing feeling of wearing mother nature outfit. Our teenager children adopted very quickly to the situation.

At this onsen, everyone is given a yakata (Japanese robe) to wear when in the common areas such as shops, restaurants. This will sure give you some fantastic Japanese atmosphere photos.

Highly highly recommended if you have half a day to spare while in Tokyo !

“Relaxing fun place to chill & soak!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

I wanted to experience a Japanese public bath & this proved to be an ideal experience. They lines weren't that big, we got there a little early in the evening.

Took us about an hour or so get here (changed 2 trains + mono rail from Shinagawa station), but well worth the trip. Zipped through check in (they don't allow people with tattoos entry). Very organized and they have locker storage + you can pay with your wristband for most services. Very convenient :)

They had a multitude of hot springs & cold pools to choose from. I had a Korean body scrub & it was well worth it, felt squeaky clean after :)

The inside is very well decorated like a village fair and tons of food/drink options + souvenir shopping. I've been to other public baths in Asia before, but this one was definitely very festive & lively.Highly recommend!
