The Hana Biyori flower park next to Yomiuri Land is known for its spectacular greenhouses, aquariums and Japanese garden. It makes a great attraction during the day, featuring daily projection mapping shows and a plant-filled Starbucks. But the park is set to become even better this coming spring, when it will be getting its own hot-spring bathhouse.

Opening in March 2024, Kakei no Yu onsen will feature indoor baths, bedrock baths, saunas, and open-air baths with spectacular views. It will be located 100 metres above sea level, with the open-air tubs offering a panoramic view of the city of Tama.

That scenic vista can be enjoyed both day and night.

Due to its advantageous location, the bathhouse may also become one of the best spots to catch the annual Chofu Fireworks in early autumn.

After relaxing at the hot spring, head over to the in-house restaurant for a traditional Japanese gozen-style meal. The eatery will be operated by the Onodera Group, which runs the famous Sushi Ginza Onodera chain, including the fancy conveyor-belt Kaitensushi Ginza Onodera in Omotesando and a Michelin-starred branch in New York.
