Share Article

As Japan aims to attract the 2020 Olympic Games, Japan's push towards globalization becomes a local pursuit at this hot spring spa in Japan. Enoshima Island Spa Medical Hot Spring welcomes the world with a “Holy, Healing and Healthy” approach to alternative therapy.

We felt Enoshima could offer healing aspects available nowhere else so we structure the Enoshima Island Spa experience to emphasize the strength of this amazing island.

Introducing a special program for Overseas Guests and Expats, Enoshima Island Spa, a hot spring spa in Japan, joins nationwide hospitality providers in opening up to the international community today.

Change is in the Japanese Air. It is an underlying change in consciousness as ripe in the mom and pop yakitori shop in Shimbashi as in the stunning lobby of the Conrad Tokyo in ultra-modern Shiodome. Eagerness to grow, internationalize and join the global economy permeates businesses focused, until now, on domestic clientele. One such example is the singular oasis, a medical hot spring spa in Japan, The Enoshima Island Spa. Enoshima, known as one of Japan's most ancient power spots sits right adjacent to legendary Kamakura, the former capital where Zen Buddhism found its place in Japan. Enoshima seems to float on rocky seas just off the coast and is connected to the mainland by a graceful Benten Bridge, and the Hawks and Seagulls soaring continually between the Enoshima Lighthouse Observation Tower at the peak and un-manned beach side picnic baskets below. Wet-suited surfers skip over choppy waves, ooh-ing tourists snap photos of majestic Mt. Fuji in the hazy distance and devoted retirees pray for good fortune, wealth, music and knowledge from Benzaiten the Goddess of eloquence and all that "flows".

The untouched hot spring water pumped from 1,500 meters below the island into the baths at Enoshima Island Spa is rich in sodium chloride and other minerals, and in combination with the carbonated bath, outdoor heated pools, expert aromatherapy, foot massage and cutting edge medical equipment for effective non-invasive physical evaluation, this day spa was an oasis of healing, refreshment and alternative therapy for those in the know. That is, until now.

The hot spring spa in Japan assumed a medical mission in 2009 after realizing the holistic benefits available on hand from the island itself, the mineral properties in the hot spring, the organic food available in the area. The spa offers a comprehensive approach to refreshment and rejuvenation.

"We felt Enoshima could offer healing aspects available nowhere else so we structure the Enoshima Island Spa experience to emphasize the strength of this amazing island," states General Manager Mr. Yoshitaka Konno. "The air, the hot-spring, the ocean view and sounds, the food and the history of the island itself are synthesized into our program for holistic alternative therapy." Under the expert guidance of three physicians, The Enoshima Island Spa Medical and Therapy Spa utilizes the healing properties of the sodium chloride hot spring waters, aqua exercise, macrobiotic menus at the Enoshima Island Grill, aromatherapy, Shiatsu foot massage and other methods to provide a unique preventative, holistic health opportunity for guests.

"This spa offers a completely unique experience to all visitors and we wanted to make sure foreign residents and visitors could benefit by learning more about this hot spring spa in Japan as well. The team has morning meetings in English, takes regular English Communication Training, and we are translating the web presence, pamphlets, have a dynamic facebook presence and other materials. Business people on extended trips or pleasure travelers in search of an all-around Japanese healing experience should definitely make the 60 to 80 minute train ride to spend a day on this amazing island," says Ruth Jarman Shiraishi who works with Enoshima Island Spa to reach the foreign community and visitors to Japan.
