Japanese Public Bath ~How about the old-time Japanese Public Bath?~
About 1-minute walk from our hotel, there is a public bath called “YanagiYu”, a Kyoto-atmosphere building which is built in the early Showa Period. Once you enter it, you will feel like you are going back to the Showa period.
Not just the Kyoto-style outside, the interior is full of Showa atmosphere such as the tiles painted with neighbor Heian Jingu Shrine, the old-fashioned locker room and massage chair, etc. It’s just like a miraculous public bath of the early Showa period.
Although bathrooms are in all the rooms in our hotel, if you have never tried the Japanese public bath, don’t miss the chance to give it a try as the memorable part of your Kyoto trip.
We also prepare an accommodation plan including the ticket of YanagiYu, bath amenities, and Kyoto local beer “京麦酒”.
If you are interested, please don’t hesitate and make a reservation now!

Noh is a major form of classical Japanese musical drama that has been performed since Muromachi Period for over 600 years.

Our staffs are always ready to help you take the best photos during the event.
