When speaking of hot springs, many people usually imagine them outside Tokyo and its vicinity, such as Hakone and Kinugawa. But there are a number of facilities to enjoy within Tokyo. Introducing you to the charm of a popular hot spring, “Jakotsuyu” in Asakusa, which has been featured in numerous television programs and magazines.

Just 5 minutes away from Asakusa Station, and very close to Kaminarimon Street, so you will surely stop by after sightseeing to take a break.
This venerable, historic hot spring has been here since the Edo era.
The cold mineral spring features black water made from grass and leaves buried in the Paleozoic era, and dissolved in groundwater.
Since it is a natural hot spring, you can revel in all elements to your heart’s content.
Moreover, the recent renovation has transformed the interiors; and has given it a novel and beautiful new look.
The Shitamachi bathing fee is very unbelievable; 460 Yens for adults, 180 Yens for elementary school students, and only 80 Yens for infants.
Please enjoy natural hot springs in Tokyo.
