Tokyo Odaiba Oedo Onsen Monogatari, Koto
Categories: Onsen Resorts, Spas & Wellness
Experience the Japanese bathhouse culture at Tokyo Odaiba Oedo Onsen Monogatari, an ornately decorated complex of hot springs and spas. Choose a vibrant kimono-like bathrobe to wear in the common area, where you can dip your feet in the shallow pools, use the spa services, or hang out in the garden and food court. To enter the hot springs, which are divided by gender, you’ll have to leave your robe in the locker room, as the onsen is for nude bathing only. Take note that tattoos are strictly forbidden in the complex, so if you can’t cover it with a bandage you might be asked to leave. Put Tokyo Odaiba Oedo Onsen Monogatari into our Tokyo vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Tokyo.

子連れには良いのでは。土日は大混雑なので避けるべし。また、外国人を連れてくるのもよし。温泉、縁日、浴衣、寿司、ラーメンで大満足してもらいました。Is good with children. Should be avoided because weekends are crowded. Also, bring the foreigners as well. In the spring, street fairs, yukata, sushi, ramen was satisfied.show original
In order to take in the full experience you should allow yourself at least a 3-4 hours. While it is a bit of a commercialized operation, if you get past that - it is a wonderful introduction to the tr... read more »
RECOMMENDED ACTIVITY WHILE THERE: I recommend the doctor fish treatment. You put your feet in a pool and a small fish peck away for dead skin. It's painless unless you're ticklish—then it's torturous ... read more »
This is the perfect place to relax. Once you get in the onsen, you'll be asked to change into a "yukata" (a lighter kimono) that you'll wear into the onsen. You can the enjoy the baths - separate for men and women, where you have to be naked - the feet baths, with fish pedicure, the massages, the relaxing rooms, the different food stands...
A mega-onsen. Period. If you want a lot of pools and outdoor and food and hang-out with friends, you are at the right place. But if you want some quiet bath, this is not for you. Moreover, the normal Japanese people who behave very well and nicely at local spa houses are suddenly noisy and sometimes ill-mannered here. I wonder why -- maybe affected by the consumerist approach of the place? At 2,200-some yen, it's inexpensive compared to European spas, but a few times more expensive than smaller local Ofuro-houses.
This is Disneyland of onsens, everything you need. You walk in and leave your shoes in a locker. Then check in for an won't have with a UPC code, that's how you buy everything. You also get your yakuta. Next the first locker room, take off everything. But underwear and throw on the robe. Then you go to the common area, which is like an ancient village. There is food, games and souvenirs. Whatever you buy your UPC is scanned and you pay for it at checkout. Everything is reasonably priced considering. Next up another locker room, shed your yakuta and skivvies then of to the bath house. You clean yourself then enjoy the water. Lots of ribs and men's and women's are slightly different. I was in the men's. Great time and great set up. As a note for fellow western tourists, no tattoos. You cannot go into the bathhouse. Getting here is a bit involved if you are taking the subway, but they do provide a shuttle from a station. If like us you are staying near Skytree, there is a direct bus from there to Tokyo Odaiba Oedo Onsen Monogatari. At the time of our trip upon arrival we were issued vouchers for a discount admission. That paid for the trip there. If you are a fan of anime or want to do shopping there is the giant Gundam statue about 10-15 minute walk along with malls.
Here is the thing, if you like to get an Onsen village experience in Tokyo, this is the place. However, not comparable to real onsen villages like Kinosaki. The advantage with this place compared to other onsens in Tokyo is that you can go with a friend or partner of the opposite gender and spend some time together. Even if the baths are separate, the restaurant, park with foot bath, etc are possible to experience together. If you want just a bath in an onsen, I recommend to take another place. This place is a bit pricy, busy and not so genuine.
The first place I went when arriving in Japan over a friend recommendation, and a very nice place to relax and ease yourself in the surrounding culture after a long flight ! I didn't have to do the booking there (my japanese friend did it) but I highly recommend having some knowledge in Japanese to visit this place.
