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.
