SENTO GIRL –Benten-yu × Ako Nagai -vol.2SENTO GIRL -弁天湯×永井亜子- vol.2
SENTO GIRL is photo project aiming to show you the renaissance of Sento through the collaboration of these wonderful creators! For the 5th series, we welcomed Ako Nagai as model and visited Benten-yu located in Koenji.
We challenge making Sento into completely another world by gathering the girls’ creators’ power in this photo project. These photos are the result of a collaboration between model Ako Nagai, photographer and Miss iD 2016 semifinalist mitfo, and hair make-up artist hitomi.
Welcoming Ako as a model, we challenged to bring overflowing cuteness to the Sento! The red gingham check skirt suits the old Sento, bringing a bit of retro taste in these photos.
Here is the very unusual collaboration, Sento×kawaii×game…! She is usually working as a model but she’s also known as huge fan of anime and games (especially Pokemon).
Oops! Be careful, don’t drop your game machine in the bath! (*usually it’s not allowed to bring game machine to the bath!)
Sento are public bathhouses which have been a part of Japanese culture for centuries and it may be world away from a lot of the latest Japanese culture usually featured on Tokyo Girl’s Update, but with the cooperation of TOKYO SENTO, we have begun our journey into the unique and comforting world of Sento!
