Ota Kuroyu Onsen Dai ni Hinode-yu

Ota Kuroyu Onsen Dai ni Hinode-yu (大田黒湯温泉第二日の出湯) is a charming sento in Kamata, Ota-ku where you can enjoy a really nice kuroyu rotenburo (natural black water) in a quiet Japanese garden with a few Japanese Koi. The black water is said to be excellent for the beauty of the skin. Women can enjoy rotenburo the first two weeks of the month and men the last two ones.

The Facilities
Massage bath, black water bath, rotenburo (outdoor bath).

Design
Retro. Wall paint of Fuji-san with, very surprisingly, an Audi car! Designed by the artist Tanaka-san. Audi made a commercial in this sento in order to thanks their 200,000 Facebook fans (video). I really love this small paradise surrounded by vintage atmosphere in the south of Tokyo. The rotenburo possesses an overwhelming inner natural beauty.

Open hours
3pm to 0.30am, every day except Wednesday.

  • I never thought I would ever have a reason to visit Ota-ku until now! 😀
    I love the brightly colored lobbyーand I will make a note about the rotenburo so I can time it right. 🙂

      Dear Ichigoichilove,
      Ota-ku is very pleasant to have a walk and regarding sento it is full of treasure!! It is quite far from my place but I am going quite often to enjoy kuro-yu and great sento! By talking about Ota-ku, they will organize a “sento-walk” next month, I may try it :).

    “Daikoku-yu Onsen” is wrong, correctly “Ota Kuroyu Onsen”.

    • Dear Gucchan,
      Yes you are right I will correct it. I let Dai ni Hinode yu because the son of the owner is running Dai ichi Hinode yu in Ueno.

        Dear steph,
        You know well , but probably you are supposed to be a biginner of sentos of Tokyo. You could ask me everything about sentos in Tokyo, because I have the largest experiences in practically bathing them of Tokyo and the surrouding areas even if they are somewhat oldfashoned.

        • Dear Gucchan,

          Thank you very much for your comment.
