Tokyo attempts to revive communal bathing

The Hinodeyu public bath in Tokyo is offering classes on comedy and gaming as it tries to revive the dying tradition of communal bathing. It is a dying tradition in Japan and bathrooms are coming up with new ideas to attract customers. Classes offered at the Hinodeyu public bath are aimed at a younger audience. An admission ticket costs 460 Yen (INR 266). Tokyo once had over 2600 bathhouses but there's been a gradual decline in using the traditional sento. The Hinodeyu public bath has been operated by the same family since 1939. 500+ people would bath there daily in its heyday.
