Started off with a chaotic scene,behind the noren marking this great bath house in Kyoto. Open and close of the shoe locker without key, visitor pay the entry fee and quickly walk into the changing hall. Find a comfortable spot, take off the clothing and...More

Not actually an onsen, but a lovely sento with several different indoor baths, a sauna, and a wooden outdoor tub. Visited several times during my stay in Nishijin. Always friendly service, and very clean. Seemed to be popular with other travellers as well as locals.

The place itself was nice, although a bit overpriced considering that it's not using a proper hot spring. However, it's a foreign tourist magnet and not really a very relaxing place to bathe as a result. I'd much rather visit an onsen that only the...More

I was a little hesitant to visit a traditional Japanese bathhouse because I have several tattoos. I read conflicting reports about whether it would be a problem. Funaoka is very traditional and mostly Japanese. It was a very nice experience and there was no problem...More

Even if it is called onsen, it is actually a sento. But nonetheless is a very great place. The entrance fee is cheap for all it has to offer. You should take your own little towel and soap with you, but if you forget, you...More

Such a great place. The best from what I've experienced so far (JPY 430 per person, YPY 200 extra if you want to buy a little towel). Huge variety of baths and such a beautiful building. Local ladies were extremely nice and made sure I...More

Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto
is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with
its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the
neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a
self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of
the city, it is a district where you can take it at
your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving
and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many
