SENTO GIRL – Showa Yokujo × Yuko Sugamoto -vol.2

SENTO GIRL is photo project aiming to show you the renaissance of Sento through the collaboration of these wonderful creators. For the 7th of the project, we featured Yuko Sugamoto, also known as former member of HKT48 Yukosu as model.


This time we visited Showa Yokujo located in Nakano-ku. Yukosu appeared inside the Sento! Wow! How happy she looks…! Be careful not to slip!


With cute stuffed bears. They also want to take a bath with Yukosu! How many people wish if you were the bears… (*bringing stuffed dolls are usually not allowed at Sento)


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 last installment vol.3, we’ll show more pictures of Yukosu having fun in the bath!


Wow! Yokosu changed from navy yukata to pink one! With pink yukata, Yukosu looks more innocent and adorable, don’t you think so? And did you notice that the shape of the mirrors in this Sento is heart shaped? What a cute idea…♡
