Imagine if you visit Tokyo, where do you want to go?
Tokyo Tower? Sky Tree?Sensoji Temple?
They are all nice, but today I would like to recommend you "Super Sento"

What is "Super Sento"?

Super Sento is basically indoor hot spring (Onsen: 温泉).
Actually Onsen means just ingredients satisfy some standard to be called Onsen.
and if onsen is located indoor, they are called a Sento (銭湯 : 銭=money 湯= hot water)
And if a Sento has more adjoining facility like arcade, restaurants, cafe, massage and so on, it is called "Super Sento".

Wrap it up, Super Sento means gorgeous indoor Onsen Facility.

What is so special about Super Sento?

Okay, I think now you understood the meaning of Super Sento!
Then let's see what is special about Super Sento.

Here are typical features of Super Sento list.

1. Often owns very big parking lot.
One of the Super Sento's main customer target is family. So often big parking lot is required.

Thermae Yu (テルマー湯) at Shinjuku

I think everybody imagines that Onsens tend to be located at suburban areas.
But here is unique Super Sento in the middle of Shinjuku.

Shinjuku is one of the biggest entertainment areas in Tokyo.
There are Kabukicho as a biggest night life place. And always party goes on until the very morning till morning everyday.

But around 10 min walk from JR Shinjuku station, there is a very gorgeous Super Sento called "Thermae Yu" (テルマー湯)

Thermae YU has following facilities.
・Multiple Onsens including Jacuzzi
・Beauty Salon
・Lounge to take a rest

And all the goods that you need for bathing is out there for free.
For example, toothbrush, Towel, Hair dryer and so on...
Even though this place is located in the middle of Shinjuku area, it has such a quality Onsen. Thermae Yu's Onsen is transported from Naka-Izu(中伊豆) real Onsen Place

And in order to meet the demands of Shinjuku people, this place is open until 6am in the morning!

When you fail to book a hotel, or just missed the last train, I think staying here is the best Choice!
