Let's Onsen! This is a group for anyone who love Onsen (温泉・hot spring） and also for who are looking for companion to visit Onsen together. There are many great Onsen near Tokyo and Kanto area such as Hakone, Izu and Kusatsu so why not go and have a relaxing time there??
The types of Onsen we are exploring are:
1.できれば 源泉掛け流し: Onsen with no-recycling water !
There are so many Onsen which re-use the hot water with filtering devices. Due to the law, those Onsen inn and spa facilities have to add chlorine to disinfect and kill bacteria. What's worse, some places put unbelievable amount of chlorine which damage skin so people who have sensitive skin like myself are better to avoid those kinds of places.
2. アクセスが楽な温泉: Easy access by train from Tokyo !
Although Hakone and Izu is probably the most visited Onsen from Tokyo, there are so a lot of famous Onsen which can be easily visited even for a day trip. Also, there are many un-known individual inns: for example, Matsushima Onsen in Tochigi prefecture, in Kanto area. If we use package tours hosted by JR or other private travel agencies, we can save money.
3. 旅館、ホテル、日帰り施設: Inn, hotels and any other Onsen facilities for day trip !
Basically we visit any sort of facilities as long as they have real Onsen water:)
4. 日帰り・一泊: Day trips as well as overnight trips !
We plan trips case by case. It might take 2 days for some places.
Looking forward to experiencing Japanese Onsen with you!!
