Many buildings with a long and distinguished history are located on Takeda Road. Kokonoe-yu is at the north end of this street. Kokonoe-yu, which was established in 1868, appeared on a TV program "Gurutto-Kansai" on NHK. A mirror in the dressing room is made in Germany. If you can appreciate the value of this historically famous mirror, that means you have an eye for art. The current owner is 76 years old and he is the fourth owner of the place and his son will be the fifth owner.
Kokonoe-yu is affiliated with an inexpensive lodging for travelers in the Johnson Building at Oishi Bridge. If you get a discount ticket at this hotel, you can take a bath at 20 yen off. Because the owner has a nice personality, Kokonoe-yu is popular among customers including travelers and foreign residents. If you don't speak Japanese, don't worry! You can communicate yourself by gestures.
Three bathtubs and "Human Washing Machine" are in Kokonoe-yu. It is a kind of Jacuzzi with swirling streams. And a light, whose color changes gradually, is installed in the bathtub. Streams of various colors have a dreamy atmosphere. Please drop in and try it.
