What you'll do

Relaxing experience just 1½ hours from Tokyo. Warm up in an outdoor foot bath & indoor spa, visit a hot spring village and enjoy local cuisine. We'll meet at JR Isobe train station (transfer through Takasaki Station), just a 5-min walk to the spa. Our trip will start with a stroll around the quaint riverside Isobe hot spring village where we'll use the natural foot bath. I'll share my knowledge of hot springs, etiquette and the region throughout our time together. At the spa, we'll have tea & snacks, then bathe in separate male/female baths. Two indoor, and one outdoor bath and sauna (dry or steam depending on the gender). There is an art exhibit area and cloth crafts made by local women that make great authentic souvenirs. Our meal is homestyle Japanese food with locals either in the tatami room of the spa or at a local eatery. Under the hot spring bath is one of the only indoor sand spas in Japan (reservation required). You can extend your stay at our nearby traditional Japanese home (Airbnb "Relax at an Onsen Village・45min from Karuizawa" or "Fun & Rest・Walk to Parks & Onsen). I can provide tips for other cultural and recreation sites, shopping, stone or sand therapy, etc.
