What to do in Tokyo when you suffer from jet lag?

The places to know when you are jet lagged in Tokyo

With an eight-hour time difference between the two countries in winter (and seven hours in summer), a flight from France to Japan can be intense. To avoid digestion problems, tiredness or too much energy, the best way is to manage to follow the Japanese sleep cycle. In order to start your stay more serenely, Japan Experience presents you today several places, which will allow you to adapt quickly and smoothly.

 

Sento, Tokyo's public baths

Japanese public baths, in addition to providing the benefits of hot water, are open after midnight. Some of them even offer baths with essential oils, as well as cold baths for the bravest!

Ideal for travelers arriving late or having trouble sleeping, they allow the body and mind to relax, thus promoting sleep.

There is an entrance fee (less than 500 yen per person), and you have to bring your own shower products and towels.
