I am fond of having a relaxing time in a cafe that is a converted old Japanese style house.
It has a nice retro atmosphere inside and you can view its Japanese garden.
This type of house is getting rarer and rarer these days.

Photos and menu

There are some relaxing tatami (straw-mat) rooms. This house was built in 1939, and it was registered as a cultural heritage property in 2013.

Hot spring near this cafe

Low Priced and Popular Hot Spring / SPA RYUSENJINOYU near Tokyo 竜泉寺の湯 草加谷塚店
I have been to this hot spring a few times. It is still unknown to international tourists. I recommend you go there on weekdays. On weekends and during holiday season, probably it is crowded in the bathing rooms and restaurant.
