The Public bathhouse "Choja-yu" and Marche

In the Sento (public bath) in Kyoto, events such as Rakugokai are held in the dressing room.

This time, we will introduce "Choja-yu Nokisaki Marche" held at the eaves of public baths.

From 15:00 every Wednesday, fresh vegetables and rice cakes line the eaves of Choja-yu.

Vegetables are grown in 'Aoimori Natural Farm' in Rurikei River Valley, Kyoto, and are fertility-free, chemical-free and fertilizer-free.

Neighbors come one after another for seasonal vegetables and ingredients.

On the last Wednesday of December, Mochi (rice cakes), Sekihan rice, dried persimmons and shimenawa ropes were also sold.

On the day the eaves marche is held, you can enjoy a bath using sagebrush and herbs from Rurikei River Valley in Choja-yu.

On this day, "Herb Hot Spring" is full of the aroma of cinnamon basil from Rurikei River Valley.

I look forward to every Wednesday when I can enjoy the natural blessings of Rurikei River Valley with my five senses.

Choja-yu 'is located at the corner of Kamichojamachi-dori Street and Matsuyamachi-dori Street.

Established in 1917, it is a long-established sento that celebrated 105 years of business in 2022.

Bandai also sells original goods of Choja-yu, and there are charms that are rare in sento.

This bath inherits the traditional style of pouring firewood and boiling well water.

The warm water is mild and gentle to the skin, and you can feel it warm from the core of your body.

There are water bath, medicine bath and jet bath with natural well water.

"上長者町通 (Kamichojamachi-dori Street)" is the origin of the name Choja-yu.

It is said that wealthy merchants such as money changers lived around this area when Jurakudai was located.

It is said that the name of Kamichojamachi and Shimochojamachi comes from the fact that there were many so-called "Choja (millionaire)" in the area.

I feel very rich when I'm immersed in the water overflowing in the spacious public bath.

I want to become a rich person in my heart for the new year.
