Time Out says

Once a humble, traditional neighbourhood sento, Koganeyu was transformed into a modern public bathhouse in 2020, complete with a craft beer taproom by the entrance that doubles as a DJ booth.

Rent your towel (¥200) at the bar and head inside for a relaxing dip. Baths are separated by gender, but both areas share a mural of Mt Fuji by artist Yoriko Hoshi. To improve your blood circulation, you can alternate between baths in different temperatures, ranging from lukewarm to hot. You’ll also find an open-air cold plunge pool to cool down after using the sauna.

Good news for those with tattoos: unlike many other public bathhouses in Japan, Koganeyu welcomes inked bathers as well. For more information, check our full profile of Koganeyu.
