In 2003, we opened the Ooedo Onsen Monogatari in Odaiba, Tokyo, an onsen theme park where guests can enjoy natural hot springs and an Edo (old Tokyo) downtown atmosphere. Since then, making many efforts to overcome challenges and renewing the facilities to keep pace with the times, we have been the leisure-time destination of choice for customers of all ages.
Ooedo Onsen Monogatari is also taking the initiative in revitalizing onsen ryokan (Japanese-style hotels) and hotels across the nation. There was a time when group tours, onsen ryokan and hotels offering overpriced one-night stay rates, and expensive package tours to distant destinations sold well to leisure seekers and travelers interested in onsen travel. But times have changed, and consumer needs have diversified. We need to change accordingly.
One thing that does not change is our philosophy of providing comfortable, home-like onsen experiences for an affordable price. Ooedo Onsen Monogatari strives to create a relaxing atmosphere and stress-free pleasure in onsen, as an escape from normal daily life, enabling guests to spend time together with their families and friends, enjoying the onsen and delicious meals with a smile. By providing these experiences, our hope is that guests will wonder “When was the last time we had this much fun?” We believe that as a consequence guests will seek to visit and enjoy onsen many times a year.
To achieve our aspiration, Ooedo Onsen Monogatari guarantees to manage clean, comfortable, and safe facilities, and provide with outstanding cost performance genuine hospitality delivered by smiling and attentive staff.
We are now looking 10 and 20 years ahead. Our challenge is to continue to operate the facility at exactly the same place where our guests feel like coming back to us, and to maintain exactly the same comfortable and relaxing atmosphere that made our guests feel like returning in the first place. We will also continue to invest in our facilities so that guests will be surprised at new experiences every time they return. Ooedo Onsen Monogatari considers this cycle is key for our ongoing business.
We continue to journey for better and more unforgettable onsen experiences, and to look forward to serving our guests here at Ooedo Onsen Monogatari.
