The classiest of Tokyo’s super onsen, Niwa no Yu is located off the beaten path, next to the Toshimaen amusement park in Nerima Ward. But its quiet, classy atmosphere and pretty surroundings?-no kids are allowed, the outdoor bathing area is set in a Japanese garden?-belies its proximity to its noisy neighbor.
Natural hot spring water is pumped from 1445 meters below ground, feeding a number of segregated indoor and outdoor baths and saunas including a bath lined in silky smooth Tiger's Eye quartz and a luxuriously tiled Turkish steam room. The onsen’s large co-ed area (if you didn’t bring a bathing suit you’ll need to rent one for 420 yen) makes Niwa no Yu ideal for couples. In addition to the regular indoor pool, there is a Dead Sea pool, outdoor jet baths and a Finnish sauna. After bathing there are plenty of relaxation options, including loungerooms with comfortable lounge chairs, restaurants, massage and esthetic treatments and more.
Towels and loungewear rental is included in the admission price, and all amenities like soap, shampoo and conditioner are provided.
