Hi,I’m Taiki.I was born and raised in Tokyo that means I’m ablsolutely familiar with this city.I’m living in Shibuya which is the most popular and interesting city in Tokyo. I would like to share the ONSEN I highly recommend in terms of a Japanese resident with you.

WHAT IS ONSEN for us Japanese?→One of the most popular pastimes for Japanese people is to go and stay in a “Japanese ryokan” which has a natural hot spring, or an Onsen.Onsen with open-air baths called”rotenburo“have become popular among people of all ages.Many natural hot-spring spas in Japan are a by-product of volcanoes,and most of them contain minerals supposedly good for curing various diseases such as rheumatism and high blood pressure.Some consider drinking warm SAKE,or Japanese rice wine,in a hot rotenburo while looking at snow-covered mountains to be a heavenly pleasure.

“TAKAOSAN/高尾山” means Mountain 599 meters tall that is the most popular for hiking sopt. So lots of people come to this Onsen after hiking or enjoying to see beautiful nature.From my point of view, “Keio Takaosan-Onsen Gokurakuyu” is the best Onsen in Tokyo.I’ve lost counts how many times I went there.The tubs are spacious and makes you feel relax enough.What’s more,you feel natural wind while bathing in a tub.You can’t believe that this is still in Tokyo.Since it takes about 1 hour from Shinjuku or Tokyo Station by train,it’s not that far away. You definitely have to drop by this Onsen if you come to Tokyo.
