A trip to Japan is quite the commitment to most people – which is why most of them try to cram an unbelievable number of things to do and visit during their stay. And while that is great and all, you can still end up with swollen feet or an aching back after all those days of walking around Tokyo. In that case, the best way to get back in shape and ready for new adventures is hit up a good spa. Today, we’re going to introduce you to the top 6 hotel spas in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo.
1. Club on the Park (Park Hyatt Tokyo)
Located inside the famous hotel from the Lost in Translation movie, Club on the Park Spa is one of the highest rated spas in Tokyo among foreigners.

These include massages, facials, aromatherapy, wraps, peelings, and more. Prices at Club on the Park start at around ¥20,000, so it can get pretty pricey even if you opt for just one treatment, but the experience is definitely worth it.
