Hot Springs in the City - Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo Announces New Plan
The new Urban Oasis Stay plan allows guests to freely enjoy its award-winning spa facilities along with a limited-time bamboo lantern display and firefly viewing.
TOKYO, April 26, 2023 (Newswire.com) - One of the only hotels in Tokyo offering hot springs, Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is launching a new plan for tranquility-seeking travelers.
YU, THE SPA, the hotel's award-winning spa, comprises a hot spring bath, spa treatment facility, indoor pool, sauna, and fitness gym. The onsen (hot spring) water is brought from Ito, a city famous for its excellent onsen resorts.
The new plan, called Urban Oasis Stay, was created in response to the huge increase in overseas guests and inbound tourism to Japan. It allows guests to enjoy all of the spa facilities without needing to book separately. As one of the only hotels in Tokyo with hot springs, it also provides guests a rare opportunity to experience a Japanese onsen without leaving the city. Bookings start from two nights.
After relaxing at the onsen spa, guests can enjoy a meal at one of the hotel's traditional Japanese restaurants or take a stroll through their expansive Japanese garden, which changes with every season.
This spring and summer, Chinzanso Garden is featuring a takeakari bamboo lantern display as part of its 70th anniversary celebrations. Visitors can walk through the 82-foot (25-meter) path from the garden's traditional watermill to Japanese restaurant Mokushundo, lined with 40 bombori bamboo lanterns and 14 takemari bamboo ornaments.
The bamboo lanterns continue into the camellia and moss garden, located behind the pagoda, and on the hotel's rooftop garden, Serenity Garden. The illuminations are on display from sunset until 11 pm daily from April 10 to September 18, 2023.
Guests who visit from May through June are in for a special treat. The garden will be lit up not only by the bamboo lanterns, but also by the 10,000 fireflies that inhabit the garden in early summer. This year's firefly season is from May 19 to July 2. More information can be found on the hotel website.
