Experience a public bath in the basement of Kyoto Tower
Some of you may know that Japan is popular for public baths and hot springs. If you would like to experience a public bath with ease in Kyoto, you should visit the Kyoto Tower Public Bathhouse ~YUU~. It is in the basement of Kyoto Tower which is a famous landmark located just in front of Kyoto Station. The way you enjoy Japanese public baths is quite different from those in western countries. First you need to be completely naked when you take a bath (you can take a small towel for washing your body). Also, please wash your body before taking a bath. As this public bath opens from 7am, you can enjoy having a bath in the basement of Kyoto Tower when you arrive in Kyoto early in the morning!

It is fun taking bath with this hot water fountain! It’s also interesting that there is a panel of Mt. Daimonji on the wall, which is one of Kyoto’s major landmarks, so you might feel as if you are in the center of Kyoto while taking a bath! Another good point is that the dressing rooms are very clean!
