I seem to recall somewhere near Mt. Fuji being a sort of onsen town, but can't recall. Amani, I think it was? Is that shinkansen accessible and nice/reasonable?
Don't be like my friend who spent the entire seven days in Akihabara, while I took another friend on a tour around kantou and kansai.
...... just use six days instead.

Use the single day free and go to Atami! The hotspot of hotsprings.
Sure, there are other places many people would suggest, but since Atami is the most prominent, they also have largest tourism for onsen, which I would think would help English speakers a bit better.
Atami is in Shizuoka pref., pretty close to Tokyo.
