Fuku no Yu
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Completely renovated in 2011 and now looking more like a resort-style ryokan than an old-school neighbourhood bathhouse, Fuku no Yu sure stands out in quiet Komagome. Its twin sides, switched up every week, are both dominated by newly painted depictions of Mount Fuji – the more orthodox one by veteran sento artist Kiyoto Maruyama, the other, bold and blood-red, by fellow specialist painter Morio Nakajima. And the artsy delights don't end there: the wooden partition bears a colourful work created by artist collective Gravityfree. Now a popular destination for both locals and sento geeks from further away, Fuku no Yu is sure to satisfy any bather looking for a retro soak.
