GINZAYU is the public bath that located in the middle of Tokyo city. The building is under the Metropolitan Expressway over pass. The interior of GINZAYU makes us feel the good-old days since this public bath has been opening since 1975. And it has renewed in 2013 to keep both retro and clean atmosphere. Though the temperature of the bath is bit hotter than usual, so that you could get rid of work fatigue and stress. The good point is the location that is as near as only 12 min by walk from Tokyo station. So GINZAYU would be recommendable relaxing spot for Tsukiji tourist.
GINZAYU is small and has simple building structure. The interior has tile wall with Ginza city paint art on it. It is Ginza 4 Chome’s paint art in man’s bath, and Sumida river’s fireworks paint art in lady’s bath. The Ginza city drawn on the tile wall in man’s bath is that of 1948 and feels retro atmosphere. This work of art has kept it’s color since when it has drawn, let us know the good time of late Showa Era. It is very happy that we could feel the urban flavor at Onsen spot in Tsukiji・Ginza.
