Long flights and weary bodies have one perfect remedy: airport hot springs. It might turn your waiting time into a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Haneda Airport: Tennen Onsen Izumi Tenku no Yu
First up is Haneda Airport, which is frequently used by many visitors from abroad. Here, you can enjoy "Tennen Onsen Izumi Tenku no Yu." Moreover, it's conveniently located within the "Villa Fontaine Grand Haneda Airport" hotel, making access a breeze.
What's noteworthy is that if you have a small tattoo that can be covered with a patch, you can still enter. Patches of around 12cm x 17cm are available for purchase on-site.
Why not enjoy a final hot spring experience in Japan at Haneda Airport before you depart?
Narita Airport: Narita Airport Onsen Sora no Yu
Next is the famous Narita International Airport. Just a short, approximately 10-minute ride away via a free shuttle bus from Narita Airport, you'll find "Narita Airport Onsen Sora no Yu."
Bathing in the open-air bath while watching planes take off and land is truly exceptional. However, starting from September 1, 2022, the rules for those with tattoos became stricter. Currently, those with tattoos small enough to be hidden by a palm can enter, but if it's larger, entry is not permitted (Restrictions of people with tattoos).
