Ryogoku is a popular sightseeing spot with Edo Tokyo Museum and Kokugikan. The public bath “Mikoku-yu” has been loved from the locals. It uses natural hot spring “Kuro-yu”. The Kuro-yu’s characteristics are its black color, and the ingredients of plants that are blended into the hot water which will help your body keep its warmth even after getting out of the bath.
It was long established since it was founded in 1947, but it was reconstructed in 2015 so the inside of the facility is fresh and clean. The baths are in the 4th and 5th floor, which changes every week. In the half-open spaced bath place in the 5th floor, you can see the Sky Tree so we definitely recommend you to take a bath there.
There is a bar nearby as well, so you can have a drink after your bath.
