Kyoto, Kita Ward, Murasakino Shimosekiryucho 1
15:00 - 00:00
In the centre of the bathing area is the main bath: a deep bath with water jets on one end. Behind that is a shallow bath connected to a denkiburo. Besides that there is also a medicinal bath with regularly changing minerals or herbs.
What is striking about Kinryū-yu is the large mural on the back wall. The women’s bath features a lake with a church-like structure on the shore, the men only see rocks and the lake. It is as if the lake water runs into the baths underneath.
On Tuesdays, when Kinryū-yu is closed for regular bathing, it is often used as an event space with live music and flea markets. Kinryū-yu calls this 銭湯deフェスタ (Sentō de Festa). These events are hosted by Yuu-chan. Read her blog here (and the Google translation here).
