Japan is known for its communal bathing in its hot springs. Ryogujo Spa Hotel Mikazuki on Tokyo Bay in Kisarazu City, is in Chiba Prefecture, just outside Tokyo. It is a popular destination spa that offers an authentic immersion in Japanese-style fun.
Day visits to the hotel spa are offered, but for the full experience, stay overnight. Select your outfit to wear during your stay-- the full-length kimono-style yukata or the popular two-piece, knee-length pajama-style for men and mu-mu style dresses for women, both in splashy prints.
Choose a western-style bed or sleep on the tatami mat in the guest room. A thermos of hot water, tea leaves and cups are on a low table in the matted area.
Swimsuits are worn in the hotel pools but not in the gender-separated hot springs or individual gold or silver tubs. According to the hotel literature, the Kisarazu Mikazuki hot springs are good for “neuralgia, myalgia, arthralgia, subacromial bursitis, physical fatigue, women’s diseases etc...”
This spa hotel is an ideal couples, friends, or family getaway, with an assortment of playrooms and amusements that include video and game machines for kids, games of chance, and karaoke booths. The locker key--blue for men and red for women--can also be used to charge items in the stores, restaurants, esthetic and massage salons, and souvenir shops.
Meals include a fascinating assortment in the all-you-can-eat buffet dining room that overlooks the bay. There are Chinese and Japanese restaurants and plated, multiple course dinners served with flaming style in the banquet hall or private dining rooms.
