"祭司" (Saishi) The finest priestesses from the Temple of Venus at your command.
Kikai-yuキカイ湯 The first public bath to adopt a painting "Kikai-yu" (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo)painting on public bath walls started in 1912, the first year of the Taisho era. "Kikai-yu" (name of a public bath), opened in 1884 in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. During expansion in 1912, this public bath was the first to put a mural on the bathtub wall. For Kikai-yu, the intention was to make children happy. When we hear "public bath", we imagine several things like the bandai (reception counter), high ceilings, wicker baskets, and the Kerorin brand bucket advertisements. Among them, the murals have a special place in people's memories.
