Roten Garden

Health and beauty, Spas Machida

Time Out says

Convenient it ain't, but this onsen complex on the outskirts of Tokyo offers attractive rotenburo outdoor baths, indoor tubs and saunas at a fair price. Roten Garden bills itself as Machida's first authentic onsen, drawing its sodium- and chloride-rich hot spring water – said to be good for muscle pain and achy joints – from a depth of nearly 1,400m underground. The male and female sections rotate every day to keep things interesting, and there's also a stone sauna that you can use for an additional ¥500. Given the remote location, most people get there by car – but if you're heading via Hashimoto Station, there's a shuttle bus that leaves on the hour from outside the south exit, between 10am and 6pm.
