A journey in the past through Japanese onsen・銭湯でノスタルジーに浸る

The Millennials Kyoto is well equipped, providing shower rooms with one having a bathtub on each floor. However, it is also a not to miss experience to heal your daily fatigue in a public bath, warming up your body and soul while you're at it.


There are still some unique public baths left in Kyoto, such as old-fashioned small public baths, and some others still displaying historical tile paintings and well decorated. Amongst them, we will introduce the ones around the Millennials and the historical public baths that you will want to visit at least once.

昔ながらのこじんまりとした銭湯、歴史を感じるタイル画や装飾のある銭湯など、京都には個性的な銭湯がまだまだ沢山残されています。その中からざミレニアルズ周辺の銭湯や、一度は訪れたい歴史ある銭湯のご紹介を致します。





① Tamanoyu (10 minutes walk from the Millennials Kyoto)

It's a small shop, but it really is the typical kind that most japanese people used to go back in the days. If you're travelling with a japanese friend, he might feel nostalgic! Another interesting point is that hot water comes out of the mouth of sculptured sheeps.


①玉の湯 (ザ・ミレニアルズ京都から徒歩10分)

 小さなお店ですが、子供の頃に近所にこんな所あったな...と、つい思い出に浸ってしまうような懐かしさを感じます。羊の口からお湯が出ているところがポイントです。




② Nishikiyu (10 minutes walk from the Millennials Kyoto)

It is located near Nishiki Market, which is also known as "Kyoto's kitchen". You can see the long history bound to this public bath from its imposive appearance and wooden lockers. Jazz music will be played in the dressing room to make you even more relaxed!


②錦湯 (ザ・ミレニアルズ京都から徒歩10分)

 「京の台所」として人気の錦市場のすぐ近くにあり、どっしりとした佇まいや木製のロッカーから長い歴史を感じられます。脱衣所で流れるジャズが心地良いです。




③ Umeyu (26 minutes on foot from the Millennials, 15 minutes by bike)

This one is a very popular public bath. Good advantage is that you can get shampoo and body soap for free on the spot! Usually public bath are only open from 5pm, but not this one! On Saturdays and Sundays, you can also have a morning bath from 6 am. Why not warm you up in a public bath before going sightseeing!


③梅湯 (ザ・ミレニアルズ京都から徒歩26分、自転車で15分)

 銭湯の人気の火付け役で、普段銭湯を利用しない方でも行きやすいお店です。シャンプーとボディソープが無料なのも嬉しいポイントです。土日は朝6時から朝風呂もやっているので、銭湯で温まってから観光、というプランも良いですね!





④ Funaoka Onsen (30-40 minutes by bus or bicycle from the Millennials Kyoto)

Founded in Taisho 12th year, the building is a historical public bath that has been designated one of the Tangible Cultural Properties of Japan. The sculptures on the ceiling and columns or the colorful tiles are now of highly value. There are rock baths and cypress baths in the open-air section. Just like most public bath, male and female are switched on a daily basis so you'll be able to enjoy all of them if you have to come back on different days. After warming up, it is recommended to take a break at the nearby cafe "Sarasa Nishijin", which is also located in a renovated public bath!


④船岡温泉 (ザ・ミレニアルズ京都からバスor自転車で30~40分)

 大正12年の創業で、建物が登録有形文化財にも指定されている歴史ある銭湯です。天井や欄間の彫刻、色鮮やかなタイルは、今ではとても貴重なものです。露天風呂は岩風呂と檜風呂があり、男湯と女湯で毎日交互に利用できます。温まった後は近くにある銭湯を改装したカフェ「さらさ西陣」で一服するのがおススメです!


We hope we made you want to try relaxing and healing from long and tiring sightseeing in one of those public baths. Good thing also is that you can actually meet the locals while going to this kind of places!
