Kyoto Sento Exploration Tour - Kyoto's sento are ten different kinds of sento.

Plan Details

Kyoto is dotted with numerous public bathhouses. There are more than 150, each with its own unique bath, architecture and history. This tour takes you on a city tour of seven sentō and sentō-related spots in Kita-ku, Kyoto, a "hotly contested area for sentō". All of the spots are fascinating, including a number of hole-in-the-wall public bathhouses loved by local residents, unique cafés that have been renovated from public bathhouses, and a public bathhouse designated as a national cultural asset that has been in existence since the Taisho era. We will help you to find a great sento to relieve the pleasant fatigue of your Kyoto city walk.
