Tokyo “Onsen” Hot springs

In case of stay in Tokyo, “Onsen” Hot springs and public baths

WIMG_9699 W20140622_172636 W20140622_162242 W20140622_162145 W20140622_145423

Onsen is water that contains mineral components other than water from the ground. Basically, hot spring is often located in the vicinity of the volcano. Therefore, the number of hot springs is less in Tokyo. In addition, it is whether is very important that how to enjoy hot spring “Onsen”.

If you want to enjoy the natural scenery or good of view, it is recommended that you go out to the suburbs.

However, traveler’s time has limited. I propose three ways.

1.   Hot spring facilities in Tokyo
Hot water is a hot spring. The view is modern and inorganic. 1000 yen or more

2.  Public baths in Tokyo
Hot water is not a hot spring. You can experience the traditional Japan. Economic. Once about 500 yen.

3.  “Oedo Onsen Monogatari”
Hot water is a hot spring. Interior is reminiscent of the old days of Japan. Once about 2000 yen

 

I will introduce the Oedo Onsen.

This is located in Odaiba.
Appearance is big, there is atmosphere of old Japan.
Free buses depart from the main station.
As Japan’s first hot spring theme park, it opened in March 1, 2003.
Normal business hours is until the next morning 9 am from 11am.

There is accommodation “Oedo inn Iseya” and simple accommodation “Black Ships Cabin” (men only), this is possible that they will be staying.

In case of weekdays, is able to nap until 7:00 in the rest room or hall without having to use the accommodation.  (this is written in February 2013)

As new attractions of Odaiba that reproduces “Edo” to the city, also as hot spring facilities that be able to go feel free , there is popular  to the elderly from children regardless of gender.

This theme is like do time slip.  After admission, choose from many kind of “yukata” that be able to rent from the facility, spend dressed. In the “Oedo Onsen” You can do game that was popular in the old days on Edo.

It Is Gokayama.

The way to go here is not easy.
Unique culture remained Because not easy.
Building made by traditional A-frame is left.
In case of “Three Little Piglets”, thatched house had been blown off.
By This building, It is big difference.
I think that it is strong than the brick house.
It is also true fact.
Because It was there from the 16th century.
This area is heavy snowfall top class in Japan.
So, basically, the roof slope is from east to west and from west to east.
In addition, the slope of the roof is significant.
Less likely to put on the snow.
Sun to hit well.
Do you believe that the screw is not used in this building?
The big buildings, it is realized by devising the combination of the tree.
This roof is replaced in 20 years.
It is not possible that to do by this owner.
It need to cooperate all of the residents of the village.

The festival of once in 3 years

猿江神社

猿江神社

 

祭神は天照大御神・宇迦之御魂神。平安時代後期、源頼義・義家父子による奥州遠 征(前九年の役)で数々の武勲を立てた家臣『猿藤太』は武勇の士と讃えられたが、此の地の入江で力尽きた。地元の漁師達は手厚く葬り、当社の境内に塚を建 て葬ったが、猿藤太の「猿」と入江の「江」の字を取り結び「猿江」の社名になったと伝えられる。創立年代は不詳だが康平年中(1058)頃には近在の信仰 を集め、稲荷社として境内地5百余坪を有したという。昭和21年に伊勢大御神を合祀して社名を猿江神社に改称した後も「猿江のお稲荷さん」として親しまれている。

猿江神社例大祭    
3年に1度の本祭りの年(2008)には土曜日に社殿で祭礼、日曜日に神幸祭が行われ午前8時に猿田彦を先頭に、神職・お囃子の後に古式のまま行列が神 社から出発し、町会神輿の連合渡御を伴って氏子町会を巡幸し午前11時ごろ神社に戻る。2008年は猿江2丁目と住吉1丁目町会の神輿が神幸祭連合杜御に 参加したが午後には各町会神輿、山車がそれぞれの各町会を練り、両日とも境内で奉納踊りほか色々な行事が催され沢山の屋台が出て祭りは賑わう。
