You will meet the several shops inside such as souvenir shop, game shop or even fortune teller shop. They try to get your bar code scanned.
Small canal and robot dog.
The seats are scattered around the area.
Ooedo Onsen is also one of the sponsor for the hero in Tiger & Bunny anime.
I went to feet foot bath outside first.
The hot spring water relieved the pain and ache in my legs and feet.
I went back inside to find something to eat.
There are 2 type of restaurants here. Ones are like the food court. Others are the real restaurants which the price is very high and allow smoking inside.
At that time I wanted to eat Kaisendon so I chose Ezo Tarabamaru.
I ordered Ishikaridon that consist of raw salmon on the sushi rice, miso soup and cold soba. The taste is so – so although it’s quite expensive.
For the drink. There are machines that can make the oolong tea and green tea in the food court area. I really love its hot green tea.
Now it’s time to go to the onsen.
The problem here isn’t how to use the service since the English guide with illustration is available but you have to be naked with other people. I’m very lucky since I’m alone in this trip. No people from my country see me naked.
You will meet the locker room before the onsen. First thing to do is to get the towels set at the counter. Undress yourself and put everything in the locker including your wristband. You can only bring the small towel and locker key with you.
Photograph is forbidden inside. I borrow photos from their official site.
When you enter onsen zone. First use the warm water to clean yourself then use the shower first. After cleaning yourself you are free to enter any pools here. The water here is the hot spring that comes from below this place.
The outdoor pool is also available but make sure to warm yourself first before go outside.
After you dip yourself in the pool. You may want to enter the sauna room inside but I didn’t enter it. I clean myself again with the warm water and get out from the onsen.
When you come back to locker room again. The hair dryer, hair gel, lotions, etc. are available for using. The hot milk and the new clothes (in case you need them) are available at vending machine.
If you plan to use onsen again, you can ask for the bag to keep your towels instead of return them.
Finished every business here. I went back to change to my clothes at locker room then went to the counter for checking out.
Walked back to Telecom Center station for taking the train to Shimbashi station since I have Yurikamome one-day pass.
If you want to save the train fare, there is the shuttle bus that go back to several places in Tokyo. You can take the ticket from the counter.
That’s all of my 4th day of this trip. Next time I will write about my AKB48 single hunting on the 5th day of the trip. Please look forward to it.
