Finding a private onsen in Japan is a bucket-list item for many travelers here. Japan’s many famous onsen towns such as Nikko, Hakone, and Beppu are great places to start when booking ryokan (traditional Japanese inns) or hotels with private onsen. But with most trips starting and ending in Tokyo, why not find a private onsen in Tokyo?

Unfortunately, private onsen in Tokyo are not as common as other places in Japan, because onsen in general are not common in big cities. Which makes private onsen even harder to find!

After some extensive research on both Japanese and English sites, here’s my comprehensive list of private onsen in Tokyo. These include ryokan with private onsen in Tokyo, as well as hotels. They also include kashikiri, or rentable, private onsen in Tokyo.
