The indoor hot spring theme park that looks like an old Edo village
This indoor hot springs theme park is a real only-in-Japan experience – it’s like spending a day in Old Edo, with every kind of food and variety of hot spring you can imagine.
At the Oedo Onsen we can jump in and out of all kinds of hot springs, from milky white micro-bubble filled water to rusty red, rich in minerals. Men and women bathe in separate areas, of course, but everyone can meet up to eat and drink and enjoy the foot bath and the Therapy Fish pedicure together.
First we exchange our street clothes for traditional cotton yukatas, and meet up in the town square. The Oedo Onsen is designed to look like an Edo Era village at twilight, complete with a festival drum tower strung with lanterns.
What shall we do first? Go into the bath area and try all the hot springs? Book a massage? Stick our feet in the Therapy Fish pool and get our toes nibbled? Be buried up to our necks in a sauna-like Sand Bath? So many choices!
