Sento Kumamon

For a limited time only, beloved regional mascot Kumamon takes over a public bathhouse in Sumida-ku. The venue has collaborated with popular yuru-chara Kumamon, the adorable black bear from Kumamoto, to create a unique bathing experience. Daikokuyu is a traditional sento (Japanese public bath) located in Oshiage and founded in 1949 which offers natural hot spring water and boasts an outdoor bath with a view of Tokyo Skytree. For a month-long period the whole bathhouse has been transformed with Kumamon motifs, from his trademark red cheek dots to his smiling face painted into the picturesque wall mural above the baths. Super fans of the bear can also chose to purchase special edition towels and take part in events during the period. Note that all typical sento rules apply as usual (although Daikokyuyu does accept visitors with tattoos), so no mixed bathing and no swimwear allowed, just your chance to relax and unwind in all your naked glory as you lovingly gaze up at Kumamon.
