What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word onsen? Probably somewhere calm and quiet, where you can relax in steaming water, away from the troubles of the world. Now contrast that with the bustle, crowds and relentless activity of Japan’s capital, Tokyo. Seems pretty incompatible, right? But, with these 17 hotels that have their on-site onsens, you might just get the best of both worlds. After a whole day of running around the city, there’s nothing more ideal than sinking into a hot spring and letting the water work its magic on your aching muscles.

1. Centurion Hotel & Spa Ueno Station (from USD 44)

Located at Taito, Ueno, Centurion Hotel & Spa is only a three-minute walk from Okachimachi Station and a five-minute walk from Ueno Station. A popular weekend destination, Ueno is an excellent choice for tourists as it offers a lot of attractions and shopping areas like Ueno Park, Tokyo National Museum, and Ameya Yokocho Market (Ameyoko), among others. After you’re done strolling down the streets of Ueno, head back for a relaxing and comfortable stay at this hotel. You can use the sauna, Jacuzzi, hot spring bath, and a public bath to unwind and de-stress. Each room also features organic toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, and body soap. For the next day, wake up to a lavish buffet breakfast served at the on-site restaurant, Yakiniku Yansando, featuring Japanese delicacies like yakiniku barbeque.

Some pointers about onsen use...

Onsen at the hotel
Source: Booking.com

Before going to the onsen, here are some things you should take note of – most onsens will require you to disrobe completely. If you’re not comfortable with the idea of being naked in front of other people, then private baths are available, but they will cost more. Since everyone shares the bathwater, it’s important to wash yourself thoroughly before getting in, and to towel off after getting out so the floor isn’t slippery. Most importantly, remember to relax and don’t be afraid to socialise with the other bathers – it’s the best time to get to know locals or other travellers. Happy bathing!
