Hi, how are you doing? Are you interested in visiting Japan? If you so, This article might help your trip to Japan.
There is two main hub airport when it comes to the access to Tokyo and the cities around Tokyo. These are Narita airport, Haneda airport.
Many foreign visiters are using Narita airport because this airport has a lot of international lines airlines.
I think the main difference between these airports are the distance from the center of Tokyo which I think is the destination of your trip.
Haneda airport is located in Tokyo, therefore it is more convenient to go to the center of Tokyo.
On the other hand, Narita airport is located in Chiba prefecture, which is next to Tokyo. So, it takes a little more time to reach Tokyo.
But, do not worry about the distance. there are a lot of way to access to Tokyo, like train, bus, taxi, UBER, etc. http://tokyocheapo.com/travel/transport/cheapest-transport-to-and-from-narita-airport/

Moreover, if you want to experience more comfortable bathhouse, I recommend you to go to Hananoyu (華の湯) because it is relatively near from Narita airport.
