Rokuryu Kōsen

Top choice bathhouse

in Ueno & Yanesen

Dating from 1931, this gem of a neighbourhood sentō (public bath) has a beautiful mural of the wooden arched bridge Kintai-kyo in Iwasaki on the bathhouse wall. The amber-hued water is packed with minerals that are reputed to be excellent for your skin, if you can stand the water temperature – a scalding-hot 45°C in the cooler of the two pools!

The bathhouse is located down a small lane next to a shop with a green awning.
