Important Information

Most of the hot springs do not allow people with tattoos and wearing swimsuits. It can be hard even for locals to find such places. However, through our concierge service, we will be able to find the best onsen for you to enjoy in Japan.


What you need to bring

Some onsen spas don't offer amenities. We recommend you to prepare a towel.
