Tokyo Day 6; Oedo Onsen Monotagari

We wanted to try an onsen so we headed down to Oedo Onsen Monotagari which was located at Odaiba area.

It is really easy to get there, just head to Tokyo Teleport station and there is a connecting shuttle bus from the train station.

Arrival at the onsen, here are the rates charged. We were there during weekdays so we paid about 2480 yen each for entrance.





We put our shoes into the locker first and headed to the reception where we are given keys and maps of the onsen. The keys had tags where it is scanned everytime you spend in the facility (food & games etc.). You only pay at the end. 



 There are female locker and changing room and men locker and changing rooms. We were given yukata to change into.






TADAAAA~ presenting kevin & me in yukata.









Within the area, you can enjoy food, traditional matsuri games. I like how it is lighted up with lanterns and feels like a japanese festival. And there was not many people at that time.














We ate.
