Oedo Onsen Monogatari is located only a couple of minutes walk from the Telecom Center Station, or alternatively you can head to the Tokyo Teleport station where a free shuttle service is provided to the Onsen.
So what makes Oedo Onsen cool and worth a visit, I hear you ask?
Well, let me run through with you some of the fun stuff to do they have there! It's basically a theme park that's dedicated to onsen, so you have plenty to keep you occupied!
You get to choose a yukata to wear!
They have a bunch of different varieties, and I feel like this just gets you into the spirit of visiting an onsen straight away. You can see some of the options below that they have available (the one I chose is on the far left, and the one Mike chose is on the far right).
There are a range of baths - both indoor and outdoor
Looks relaxing, right? It is! The water they use in the onsen is from a natural hot spring, so the minerals in the water leave your skin feeling awesome! It's like being at a day spa!
Speaking of day spa...
Need some pampering in your life? You can get a range of different treatments at Oedo Onsen! From skin exfoliation, to head spas, to full body massage - they even have a fish foot spa, where you can get any dry skin on your feet nibbled away by a bunch of tiny fish. We did this (well, I wanted to and forced the husband to join me) - and it's a weird, weird sensation (think of a ton of tiny suction cups going crazy on your feet). Once you get used to the ticklish sensation it's actually rather relaxing. It works, too - my feet were smoother than ever!
You're able to try a bunch of Japanese traditional foods in the one spot
Got a craving for ramen? Maybe sushi or some yakitori skewers? There's a bunch of different food options that you can try, and their food court type area is set up like a traditional Japanese street. They even have private tatami mat rooms if you're wanting a fancier kaiseki style eating experience, but we were happy with udon and ramen!
There are even carnival type games to play!
I thought it was pretty neat that they even offered carnival games you could play. They were different to carnival games I had played elsewhere in the world, but it was great to experience games that I hadn't played before - and isn't that part of the fun of visiting a new country?!
Admission to Oedo Onsen is as follows:
●Adult (counted as anyone over 12 years of age) ¥2612
●Children（Age 4 - 12 years of age）¥1058

Also, just bear in mind they do enforce the no tattoos policy which you'll find across much of Japan when it comes to bathing.
