Fuku-no-yu ふくの湯

Fuku-no-yu, Muranishi Sogo Bldg., 5-41-5 Sendagi, Bunkyo City, Tokyo

A rare example of a retro-style bathhouse in modern Tokyo

The humble sento, or public bath, has been a mainstay of Japanese life for centuries yet is increasingly hard to come by in thoroughly modern Tokyo, where polished spas are replacing these rustic establishments.

Despite having been recently renovated, Fuku-no-yu in Bunkyo Ward is a great example of a sento that retains an atmosphere of times gone by. The venue simultaneously showcases an interesting collaboration between new and veteran local artists, and you can admire their colorful work gracing its walls, ceilings and on the wooden panels that divide the male and female quarters.

While Fuku-no-yu has become more accessible to non-Japanese speakers, it is still advisable to read up on sento etiquette before you go. Fuku-no-yu is open every day until midnight, and the male and female baths switch around weekly so you may have the chance to experience both.
