Soothing Hot Springs Near Tokyo

Some of the most soothing hot spring destinations in Japan are within easy reach of Tokyo.

Sojourn to Hakone, a beautiful mountainous area with verdant forests, small lakes and thermal springs located approximately 90 minutes from Tokyo. Behold the beautiful red tori gate of Hakone Shrine set along the edge of Lake Ashi as well as views of majestic Mt. Fuji, the iconic symbol of Japan.

Venturing a bit further from Tokyo will take you to the mountainous hot springs of Minakami Onsen in Gunma Prefecture or to Shuzen-ji, one of Japan’s oldest and most famous hot spring resort towns located in the Izu Peninsula.

Relaxing in the healing waters of one of these delightful hot spring destinations is the perfect complement to your time in the hyper contemporary metropolis of Tokyo. There are many opportunities for guided touring and self-directed exploration in these wonderful resort areas.
