Tokyo Kur Onsen Under Tokyo Station 1

Many people don’t realize this but there used to be an onsen under Tokyo Station.  It was called Tokyo Kur, open to men only and offered baths, shiatsu and akasuri massage.  Sadly, it has closed.

Excerpted from the Japan Times, Sunday, Oct. 7, 2001:

    Hi

    I used to go to the Kur often. It was a great place. I miss it (and Japan) so much.
