SENTO GIRL –Daiichi Kinjoyu x Aris Mukaide – vol.1SENTO GIRL -第一金乗湯×アリスムカイデ- vol.1
Sento are public bathhouses which have been a part of Japanese culture for centuries and it may be worlds 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 as “SENTO GIRL” photograph project welcoming Kanako Hiramatsu as a model.
For the new series, next we have visited Daiichi Kinjoyu which is located in Itabashi-ku, welcoming Aris Mukaide as a model. This sento was renovated and reopened in March of 2013, with a more modern stylish looking design.
These photos are the result of a collaboration between model Aris Mukaide, photographer and Miss iD 2016 semifinalist mitfo, hair make-up artist hitomi, and stylist Yuduki Mori. We want to show you the renaissance of Sento through the collaboration of these wonderful creators , that’s what the SENTO GIRL series is aiming for.
The outfit Aris is wearing was inspired by white towel and water drops which remind you of Sento.
In the Sento, Mt. Fuji is often painted on the wall in the bath area. As a part of the renovation, the walls at Kinjoyu were re-painted in a more modern fashion by famous Sento painting artists for both the women’s and men’s baths, and it was well talked about among this sento’s users and Sento lovers from all over. (We’ll show you more of the painting pictures in the vol.2).
SENTO GIRL with Aris Mukaide will be a 3-part series and vol.1 focuses on the entrance and outside of the bath. In vol.2 coming up on February 8th, we will show more pictures of inside the sento with Aris, and in vol.3 to be released on February 15th, there will be pictures of Aris relaxing in the bath!
