Want to try something a little out of the ordinary while in Tokyo? Look no further than the Tokyo oxygen bars.

What is an Oxygen Bar?

Oxygen bars are known as O2 bars, “sanso bars,” or aroma bars in Japan. They are much like your average bar, except that instead of alcohol, oxygen is the main attraction.  Proponents of oxygen bars claim that the increased oxygen helps clear toxins out of the system.  In addition, the added aromas are said to promote overall well-being.

Oxygen bars experienced a boom in the ’80s. However, they have faced rapid decline in recent years.  Now only a few oxygen bars remain. Instead, oxygen pods, which are full immersion oxygen environments, have taken more of a foothold.

Still, there are a few oxygen bars to be visited in the Tokyo area. Pease take a look at the following list of Tokyo oxygen bars.
