The atmosphere of Tokyo's traditional shitamachi (downtown) area lives on at this compact onsen bathhouse, a brisk ten-minute walk from Kinshicho Station. They've managed to cram a lot into the bathing area ('cosy' would be an understatement), where the tubs range in temperature from chilly to a scalding heat that's likely to appeal most to wizened old gits with skin like leather.
