Diane Olsen reports:
The shuttle take 10-20 minutes to get you from the bus stop in front of the terminal to the front door of the hotel. Or you can take the short (under ten minute) taxi over there for 1520 yen. (I taxied over there and took the shuttle back to NRT Terminal 1.)
Sadly, there’s no information about the onsen itself in English. And the hotel staff only speak limited English (though they’re quite friendly and helpful). But it’s open from noon to midnight and is open to anyone who’s old enough to be out of diapers. (Many onsen don’t allow children, so this is great for parents!)
Admission is nominally 1500 yen for adults, 750 yen for young children. Add another 200 yen to rent a bath towel. But if you click the “プリントアウトする” button on the facilities page, you’ll get a coupon that reduces that to 1000 yen (800 yen between 2pm and 5pm).
I think this is a real find. While I’ve heard of the existence of at least 2 onsen in Narita City, I think this place easily beats either of them for convenience. I only had 4 hours to kill at NRT, and I managed to soak for an entire hour and grab a quick chirashi-zushi (a great dish to order if you’re in a hurry) lunch at the hotel.
