This spa was the perfect getaway after long trips I had endured around the whole of Japan. After travelling to Hiroshima, Kyoto and Osaka this place really chilled me out. It is great for many reasons and not just one. The all-inclusive unique hot springs, three different pools, various themed massage/relaxation rooms is what makes this place worth the money and time for the ideal weekend getaway. It is a fantastic tourist destination and the person who wants a break from Tokyo city life. With only an hour and a half away from Tokyo, Shinjuku, it’s very accessible and practical choice which overlooks views to the famous Mount Fuji on a clear day. My favourite pool was the infinity pool, which looks over the sea and the mountains in the back, a rare view indeed. Sometimes it’s just lovely to think and take in your environment and thoughts in a tranquil environment such as this. The pools in the cave were very different and distinctive; I have not seen anything like it anywhere. At night, it really is a spectacular experience that you will take away with you.
The hot springs were definitely something new to a westerner like me, the lovely staff who escorted me around had told me most westerners where apprehensive about entering the hot springs as you must be naked but for the Japanese women this is a very normal. They have a very open, ‘non-phased’ attitude which I admired. I have never been naked with other women before or any kind of environment for that matter and it was a liberating experience. No woman looked at another in a weird, unusual way and was completely normal setting. I was kind of overly joyed when a kind Japanese lady had told me I was beautiful, considering she had seen me naked it was definitely a kind sentiment. I always take a compliment from a woman way more seriously, guess my dieting paid off. The massage was one of the best I have received, the room was filled with lotus flowers and the luxury finish of the rooms were exquisite.

Although summer is usually the season for fireworks in Japan, Fujisawa-Enoshima Fireworks Festival breaks with the trend and provides over 3000 shots of colorful fireworks on the 17th of October. Considering the earlier sunset, the start of 6pm is much earlier than the summer festivals making a day trip to Enoshima from Tokyo a reasonable proposition.
Enoshima Island Spa provides the special seats for this festival. You can have truly one of the best spots to enjoy these explosive wonders with the perfect background of the nearby Enoshima and the night sea.

Cave pools give a sense of privacy and lead you to a deep relaxation.
Our cave pool is tucked just above ocean level for the pristine views of Mt. Fuji. They are perfectly clean and quite to relax. The cave pool area and waterfall are based on the ancient Enoshima caves and tunnels – rumored to connect under-ocean to Mt. Fuji.
In the Taki-sen (waterfall pool), you can enjoy pouring beating hot water on the head, the shoulder and the scruff of the neck by exposing the upper half of the body in the pool. There is an area where you can lay yourself down in the pool – calming ocean sounds will lead you into a deep relaxation!
Swimsuits are required here, and are available to rent at check-in. There is no reservation required for entrance and the regular entrance rate is 2,742 yen. We are looking foward to welcoming you!
Our “Rotensen” is one of the most popular outside pools at Enoshima Island Spa. You can enjoy Mt. Fuji on a clear day. You will love the ocean air and view of the surrounding greenary, which are said to have active oxygen removing effects.
Next to “Rotensen“, we have “Tourmaline-sen“, where tourmaline stones are laid at the bottom. negative ions is associated with mood improvements, resistance to stress, and better general health. Tourmaline is a semi-precious mineral stone that has the ability to help aid in the detox process of our bodies.
Since it is an easily accessible location from Tokyo and Yokohama, and it is a natural hot spring resort, I really recommend Enoshima Island for a day trip. Take the trains to Enospa for the fastest route to relaxation from Tokyo strains!
