Two Japanese women are squatting next to a bath, while a third sits in the water.

This is the same gorgeous onsen resort in Hakone as shown in Hakone 1880s • Two Women in Bathroom. See that article for detailed information.

We know that this photo was actually taken in Hakone, because a photo exists of this bathhouse with a title in the negative that identifies the location as Hakone.

I have a small favor to ask

Old Photos of Japan aims to be your personal museum for Japan's visual heritage to increase our understanding of Japanese culture and society.

Finding, acquiring, scanning, restoring, researching and conserving these vintage images, and making the imagery and research freely available online, takes serious time, money and effort.

I do this without charging for access, selling user data, or running ads.

Your support helps to make this possible, and ensures that this important visual heritage of Japan will not be lost and forgotten.

If you can, please consider supporting Old Photos of Japan with a regular amount each month. Or become a volunteer.

Thank you,
Kjeld Duits
