Located inside Hotel Chinzanso, find YU, The Spa; the hotel’s spa facilities and wellness facility only accessible by both hotel guests and special members. Featuring an on-site natural hot spring and indoor swimming pool with retractable roof, jacuzzi, wet and dry sauna, fitness gym and relaxing lounge. A whole day can be easily spent here without even leaving the hotel. Notably, the spring water is notably refreshed daily, sourced from the Kohakuen Onsen in Shizuoka, Ito Prefecture (owned by the same company, Fujita Kanto).

The spa treatment rooms were only recently introduced in 2018, initiated by skincare group L’Occitane. Situated in a dimly-lit and atmosphere space abundant in timber and bronze furnishings, the tranquility and serenity is immediate as soon as you enter. The 10 different treatments rooms accommodate singles or couples, with some even featuring a small garden and patio space to enjoy Hotel Chinzanso’s famed garden during a treatment.

With over 40 different spa treatments including Healing Hot Stone Massage, Oriental scalp service to rice body scrubs – all encouraging relaxation, circulation, and wellness of the body. Facial Treatments range from Pro-Collagen Age Defying formulas, to Lift and Contour, or Precision Peels and Pigment Perfectors. Natural ingredients are key here, such as the body treatment Rose Hydrating Cocoon (Body Exfoliation & Envelopment) utilising natural olive grain oil and rose gel.

Not only as a destination for guests, the spa treatment therapists offer some of Tokyo’s best facial and body treatments. With a warm lemon water upon arrival, and a small snack of hand-peeled fruits upon departure it is an amalgamation of nature and health; and where Japanese omotenashi (hospitality) ensures YU, The Spa, is an example of utmost excellence as an ultimate wellness facility.
