## Bunka-Yokusen

Bunka-Yokusen is located one stop away from Shibuya, which is a bathhouse that has a history of over 70 years. It was also the stage for a Japanese soap opera, “Furoagari no Sora ni”.
What we want to focus on here is the nano bath and the soft water. The bathtub in Bunka-Yokusen uses a nano bubble generator. Nano bubbles are known for its effects on losing weight as well as beauty treatment. It also cleans small stains from your skin, resulting in beautiful skin afterwards. Furthermore, the water used here is soft water. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about your skin or hair being damaged after bathing. It is highly recommended for people with atopic dermatitis, sensitive skin, or dry skin.

The characteristic of Bunka-Yokusen’s interior is the painted picture. It is common for Japan’s bathhouses to have painted pictures on their walls, but most of these paintings are rectangular. However, the painting in Bunka-Yokusen is round. This is Japan’s first round painting. By all means, check it out. If you want to enjoy both modern technology and Japan’s tradition, Bunka-Yokusen is the place to visit!
