Japan Culture,  Tattoo Friendly Onsens,  Tokyo

Five Tattoo Friendly Onsen IN Tokyo (only 30 min away from Tokyo Station) + Map!

I’m a firm believer that getting tattooed is your right and choice, and people should mind their own business (and their own skins) but unfortunately not everyone shares my opinion, especially in Japan.

If you’re coming to Tokyo and wanting to rest your tired bones in a healing, relaxing onsen without worrying about your ink getting you kicked out, keep reading.

I found five tattoo-friendly onsen in Tokyo-Tokyo. Meaning not 4 hours and 3 different vehicle rides away from the city! In fact, they are roughly 30 minutes away from Tokyo station in public transport so you don’t have to set a day apart for an onsen adventure. Everyday in Tokyo can be an onsen day!

TIP: You can find them on the interactive BunnyMap, just filter your search by selecting “Tattoo-Friendly Onsens”. No need to worry about writing them down (plus you can see tons of suggestions for photo, cafe, and event spots! Give it a try!)

    I think it is pretty safe to say the ones in Koenji are tattoo-friendly . I heard a lot of people telling me that wouldn’t be a problem in Koenji and I have been to 2 different sento without trouble. (My tattoos are not big though).
