Onsen (Japanese hot spring) artisan keycaps all share a resin-casted hot tub base. Onsen keycaps come in several variants, with more designs still on the way. See below for details on each style.
Capybara Onsen Keycaps
Capybaras are large rodents native to South America, but they can be seen in zoos in Japan lounging in hot springs. A Japanese zookeeper was cleaning a capybara enclosure with hot water, and the capybaras gathered to sit in the water. Upon this discovery, Japanese zoos provide capybaras with hot springs to enjoy.
Capybara onsen artisan keycaps are made in a miniature diorama style with detailed handpainting and a combination of resin casted elements and techniques.
Snow Monkey Onsen Keycaps
Japanese macaques, also known as snow monkeys, bathe and warm up in hot springs in Japan in the winter, particularly in Jigokudani.

Radish Spirit Onsen Keycaps
The Radish Spirit onsen keycaps are inspired by the Hayao Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli film Spirited Away. In the film, the Radish Spirit accompanies Chihiro to the top floor of Yubaba’s bathhouse and shields her on her way. The Radish Spirit (Oshira Daikon) symbolizes that we should cherish even the humblest elements of our lives: “Even the radish is worthy of veneration.”
