Nishiki Yu Public Bath Kyoto

Nishiki Yu Public Bath Kyoto錦湯京都

Nishiki Yu is one of Kyoto's great public baths.

It was built in 1927 and remains more or less as is.

Entering the building is a step back in time.

Nishiki is of course the central food market of Kyoto, located on a long narrow east-west street in central Kyoto. The bath is just south of the food market on Sakaimachi Street.

Like much of Kyoto, the area itself is not attractive; the buildings around the bath are modern and drab.

However, inside is a different world. The dressing room has original wooden lockers.

Parking is easy for cyclists.
