Visiting the onsen can be considered one of the highlights of a visit to Japan. It is a great and healthy way to relax and rejuvenate, whilst also being a rich cultural experience. Onsen can be found throughout Japan, from large scale onsen resorts to small, local onsen. Check out the Deep Japan website to find information and recommendations about various onsen. You will also find information about onsen etiquette including an article by Eddie, How to “Onsen” Like a Pro, which gives practical advice on how to best enjoy having an onsen. If you would prefer to enjoy an onsen while still clothed, try Enoshima Island Spa which has a bathing suit friendly onsen pool.
