Tousen Yokujo, Ikebukuro, Tokyo, closing down

The left bath tub supplies ferruginous mineral spring.

The "Tousen Yokujo (桃仙浴場)" also known as "Tousen Onsen", a small sento located at Ikebukuro (池袋), one of the busiest commercial areas in Tokyo is going out of business at the end of June 2010, ending 65 years of history. Building deterioration and decrease of mineral spring are blamed for the closure. The Tousen Yokujo is the only bath house supplying ferruginous mineral springs in Tokyo.

  1. Ehh, bathing options in Tokyo just get worse and worse it seems. Expensive and few... I'm glad I live in Kansai.
