On February 1, 2024, a new 24-hour spa and entertainment complex is opening in Toyosu. Here’s what you need to know about Toyosu Senkyaku Banrai.
What is Toyosu Senkyaku Banrai?
Developed by the Manyo Club, known for their onsen in Tokyo and Kanagawa, this new Tokyo spa “aims to transform the hot-spring experience”. The Manyo Club has worked closely with the folks at Toyosu Fish Market to develop a multi-storey hot-spring and entertainment village right next door.
Toyosu Senkyaku Banrai is divided into two distinct areas: Toyosu Edomae Market, which has the dining and shopping options, and the Toyosu Manyo Club spa.
Toyosu Edomae Market is meant to look like a village from the Edo era, complete with wooden buildings, granite, tiles (from Awaji Island), and traditional decor. While we can’t comment on the authenticity of the place, the designers have succeeded in creating a fun, jovial atmosphere that makes you want to eat, drink and just generally be merry.
Crucially, the complex offers something to do in the area, besides just wandering around the rather dull Toyosu Fish Market. It makes for a great pitstop before or after you hit up the nearby teamLab Planets, too.
There are more than 60 businesses trading at Toyosu Senkyaku Banrai, the majority of them restaurants. You can choose from streetfood, like seafood burgers or skewered salmon, or sit down for a platter of sushi, a bowl of ramen (vegan broth available at Tokyo Ramen) — or whatever else you fancy.
Pro tip: Try the matcha brulee crepe from Tabane no Shi. Seriously. It’s ¥990 well spent.
There is also a smattering of shops selling fresh produce and condiments — you can pick up nori, sauces, pickles, “premium eggs”, and more. You’ll find a small souvenir shop, too.
For a bit of fun, head to the Nomiyoshi sake stand (next to the souvenir store) and try out their drinks system: Pay ¥2,000 and get a gatchapon ball, open it up and see whether you’ve won five or a lucky seven cups of sake, and fill them from the sake dispensers along the wall. The kids can pay ¥1,000 next door to see if they can win a special marine plushie. Just don’t forget them after all that sake.
Oh, and keep an eye out for sword-wielding samurai and ninja types, who are known to leap into theatrical battle, around the Edomae Market.
The new Tokyo spa
Toyosu Manyo Club — the new Toyosu super sento — offers a relaxing space where guests can soak in a range of baths, as well as access other facilities including bedrock baths, beauty and massage studios, and relaxation rooms with reclining chairs and thousands (!) of manga comics.
There are open-air baths, indoor baths and both salt and regular saunas — all separated by gender. The water used to fill the baths is sourced on a daily basis from the Hakone-Yugawara hot springs. We’re not sure how this fits into sustainable tourism, exactly, but yep — it gets delivered by tanker truck.
Other facilities include a kids’ room, prayer rooms, relaxation rooms, hotel rooms, and private baths. These family tubs can be rented by the hour for around ¥4,000, on top of your entry fee.
Prices for the Toyosu Manyo Club spa vary by the time of day. Adult tickets cost ¥3,850, while kids get in for ¥2,000. You can buy an entry + drink combo ticket on Klook.
Early-morning bathing is discounted to ¥2,200 for adults and ¥1,100 for smalls. There is a ¥3,000 surcharge for staying overnight.
The free footbath
You can also enjoy a footbath, located outdoors on the 8F of the building, which offers an honestly lovely view of Tokyo Bay. Anyone can use this ashi-yu area, free of charge. There is an indoor café serving coffee, tea and light snacks, too.
Note, however, that the actual rooftop bath — which has been widely touted in the media — is not free. Only paying customers of the spa can use the 10F rooftop bath. It offers panoramic views of the bay, so it is definitely worth popping up to.
Are tattoos allowed?
Technically, no — but if you cover them up, it seems like you will be able to use the hot-spring baths at Tokyo Toyosu Manyo Club.
Visting Toyosu Market
The area is most well known for Toyosu Fish Market, the wholesale market that used to be located in Tsukiji.
You can watch the famous tuna auction, everyday at 5:30 a.m., from two different places — a special deck or gallery. Since the special deck offers the best views, being located on the lower floor, access is only given to those who have booked a spot in advance. Read more about visiting Toyosu Fish Market.
Pro tip: Consider staying overnight at the Toyosu Manyo Club Spa Hotel (in the same building as the hot-spring baths), or the new La Vista Tokyo Bay Hotel next door. You can also just stay in one of the relaxation rooms at the spa, if you don’t want to cough up for a hotel room. There are comfy reclining chairs to kick back in.
How to get to Toyosu Senkyaku Banrai
You can take the Tokyo BRT bus to Toyosu Fish Market, and then walk for about 3 minutes. Otherwise, you can take the Yurikamome Line to Shijo-mae Station, and walk for about 4 minutes.
