DESCRIPTION

Welcome to Funaoka Onsen, one of the oldest public bath house of Kyoto!
Ideally located at the foot of Mt. Funaoka, travelers visiting the city will appreciate its close location to Kyoto's most famous temples and shrines including the renowned Kinkakuji and Daitokuji temples, Hirano Shrine, Kitano shrine, Shimogamo and Kamigamo shrines and Kenkun shrine, but also to the Kyoto Imperial Palace.
Guests can stay in the beautiful guesthouse located just a minute walk away from the bathing establishment in a traditional Kyoto house, and are invited to use the bath house as often as they like!
The dressing rooms and baths of the establishment have been registered as tangible cultural properties since July 2003.

Funaoka Onsen history :
Funaoka Onsen was established in 1923 in a large two-story wooden house and built as an extension of the Funaoka Tower inn.
The second generation owners decided to get an authorisation to run the establishment individually, at a time when bath houses were rare in Kyoto. In 1933, they installed Japan's first electric bath and obtained the authorisation to run their establishment as "Special Funaoka Onsen" but they really started running it in 1947, after World War II.

About the baths :
Everything from the dressing rooms to the baths has remained exactly as it was during the Taisho and Showa Periods, bringing a charming atmosphere of bygone times to the place.
There are different kind of baths you can chose from to soak your weary body and relax, from the electric bath that were first introduced to Japan by the owners of the establishment to a jet bath, an open-air bath, a "medicine bath", and even a sauna.
As in most public hot springs, the baths for men and women are separated and switched daily so that everyone can enjoy different scenery and experience different baths.
Unlike most public bathhouses, however, Funaoka Onsen welcomes people with tattoo too!

[Business hours]
Weekdays (Monday to Saturday) : 15:00 to 25:00
Sundays : 08:00 to 25:00
※Guests staying at the guesthouse can bath for free anytime during the business hours!

Funaoka Onsen's characteristics :
What probably stands out the most in the dressing room is the figures of Ushiwakamaru, a Japanese warrior, and of a Tengu, a long-nosed legendary creature, sculpted in the zelkova wood coffered ceiling.
Taking a close look around the room you can discover every little detail of the room, like the beautiful openwork railing that has been carved by children during popular festivals and events.
Or the many colorful tiles that decorate the corridor connecting the dressing rooms to the baths.

レトロ浪漫銭湯の旅
レトロ浪漫銭湯の旅

船岡温泉という名前の銭湯が運営するゲストハウス。
銭湯の番台でチェックインしてからゲストハウスまで案内してもらう、という可愛い状況を体験できる。
この銭湯(宿泊客は無料で入れる)がレトロな雰囲気を満喫できる素晴らしい作り。外人観光客多し。
ゲストハウスは綺麗にリノベされた町屋。タオル、スリッパ無しとなっていたが、スリッパ有り、タオルもトイレ&人数分のフェースタオル(銭湯で売っているのと同じ物)が用意されていた。
ただしバスタオルは銭湯にも売っていないので要注意。
道の向かい側に飲み物の自販機があって便利。
静かな通りではあるが、近所に自家製パン屋、お洒落カフェ、ご飯屋さん、飲み屋、イタリアン、などなど外食先には事欠かない。
船岡温泉と同じデザインの建物を利用したカフェ「さらさ」がgood。マジョルカ島のタイル貼りの中に置いたソファでお茶できます。
