This time we visited Showa Yokujo located in Nakano-ku. The owner of this Sento, Mr. Tajimagic is a magician, and his magic shows are held regularly at the place! Check the schedule on the Sento’s website if you are interested in his magic!


Yukosu knows that she is cute and she uses the most of it so naturally, without any nastiness. That makes her more and more cute. This is natural cuteness. Yukosu’s smiles make everyone smile.


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.

These photos are the result of a collaboration between model Yuko Sugamoto, photographer and Miss iD 2016 semifinalist mitfo and hair make-up artist hitomi.



In the vol.2 of the series we’ll show more the pictures Yukosu in the bath, and in the vol.3 she will appear with different Yukata!

Been working in girls’ fashion magazines for a long time and am now the chief editor of Tokyo Girls’ Update. I have more expertise in Japanese teen fashion than anyone else (probably)! I’m a huge fan of the Revolutionary Girl Utena and Bakemonogatari animes.
