JAKOTSUYU

蛇骨湯

Description

This traditional Asakusa sento (public bathhouse) was founded in the Edo Period. Its natural hot-spring baths use an odourless, blackish-brown water called kuroyu. Kuroyu is a cold (under 25°C) mineral spring that occurs naturally with underground water and contains dissolved organic substances such as grass and leaves. Bathing in this hot water warms your body to the bone, and the warmth stays with you. A large mural of Mt. Fuji adorns the wall of this typical Japanese-style bath. Both male and female baths are equipped with hot-spring, milky-water, jet, pulse, open-air and cold-water baths as well as an electric sauna. As part of a refurbishing in 2009, hand-rails were installed in the baths to make them accessible to a wider age group. Necessities such as towels and toothbrushes are available for purchase. End your day of sightseeing in Asakusa with a traditional, piping hot bath. A three-minute walk from the No. 3 Exit of Tawaramachi Subway Station, or a five-minute walk from the A1 Exit of Asakusa Station of Toei Asakusa Line.
