Retro Public Bath in Tokyo - 銭湯 松の湯

Retro Public Bath in Tokyo - 銭湯 松の湯
MATSUNOYU 松の湯 in Tokyo is a public bath. It has old retro baths. Japanese people feel nostalgic atmosphere there.
This type of public bath is getting rarer and rarer these days.

When you walk into the building, you see two of shoe lockers and entrances for separate men and women's areas. You should take of your shoes and leave your shoes in the shoe locker. Please take the shoe locker key with you.

As for this public bath, the right side of the show locker and entrance is always for men. The left side is always for women.
However, in the case of the other public baths, shoe boxes are often for both men and women. Entrances to the bath rooms are sometimes switched. So you have to find which entrance is for men or women.
: Men
: Women

Taking a picture is prohibited in the building.
We attended a guided tour and we were allowed to take pictures before their opening time.

Men's and women's bathing rooms are separated.
Bring your towel. Shampoo and soap are free in the bathing rooms. I saw a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of body soap in the bathing room. However, some people bring own shampoo and soap. You shouldn't carelessly use their private ones.
Bathroom
There are some wash basins and mini-benches. Please sit down on the mini-bench at one of the wash stations and wash yourself properly before getting into the bath tab.
You shouldn't put your towel in the bath tub but the locker key is OK.
