One of the most popular national baths should be looked for in Tokyo, Daikoku-Yu was opened in 1927.

Daikoku-yu, Japan The sento occupies an incredibly beautiful building, which, from the moment of its construction, managed to preserve its original appearance. Outwardly Daikoku-Yu is difficult to take for an ordinary sauna, it is more like an ancient Buddhist temple. Visitors should follow a generally accepted ritual. At the entrance it is necessary to take off shoes and then clothes. After that, you should take a shower, where, according to the traditions of the past, small stools are installed for convenience. Only after that you can finally dip into one of the common baths. Bathing in water of different temperatures, and also a special font with the effect of a hydromassage are available for those who are having rest. The most unusual for Europeans font may seem roten-brown, it is located in the courtyard and is surrounded by an incredibly beautiful garden in the national style. The cost of visiting the oldest sento in Japan is no more than 6 USD. The most important thing to consider for all the visitors is a strict observance of generally accepted rules. Over the past few years, sentos have become very popular with tourists, especially for which illustrated rules in the form of comic books are produced in Japan. Next - Liquidrom Bath
