What better way to celebrate my full return to the grid than with a real good splishy splashy, right? So, first thing I did today was checking the search for onsens I haven’t been to yet. Mmmmm, found a good one. Look:
The bather’s verdict: Same as the first onsen I’ve ever visited, Empire Onsen is also a very urban onsen and sticks kinda close to the original Japanese tradition, only not in such a strict (and also silly) way. This is more toned down and puts the comfort of the guest before any onsen tradition stuff. Nothing spectacular here but just a nice little experience and cleansing of your avie. Recommended.
