This place is a trip! A great experience for me and my friend, who are both westerners.
This place is a combination of weird, hilarious, and genuinely relaxing. We went on a rainy day because we needed a break from running around the city and were pretty worn down. I would 100% recommend it if you can find a day (or half a day) to get it in. You'll feel revitalized at the day's end and you'll have a laugh along the way.
You get to walk around the premises in a gown of which design you choose on the way in. Pretty big gender-segregated bath areas (you need to be comfortable being naked, because you will be). There are a bunch of add-on activities that are fun and different ("Dr. Fish" is a MUST TRY... perhaps the weirdest thing I have ever done/felt. That's a bargain for $15). The massages were adequate. I have had a better foot massage, but I think we all know that the Thai and Chinese beat the Japanese in that realm. There are dozens of stands/cafes to get any kind of Japanese food you might fancy.
