CrossFit Kyoto > Facility
The entrance opens directly onto to the main training area with lots of equipment and open space. CrossFit and SimpleFit classes are held here.
This is a smaller training area. It is installed for small classes like Wakaba and for Personal Training sessions. When this space is not in use our members are welcome do stretching before and after their class. There is also a sound dampening weightlifting platform in this room.
CrossFit is known for its variety of movements. The rack is a perfect example of this philosophy, it works as a support for barbells, rings and ropes, allows body weight training and gymnastics movements and is even useful for stretching.
At the end of the café community space, through the Noren curtain, are the changing room area and showers. Cubby holes and lockers allow you to store your clothes, bags (and for our drop-ins there is enough space to store your luggage).
We have 3 showers, each with a different design.
This was a sento (public bath house) loved by all the locals and people from far & wide. It had its own well and was operated for 65 years.
Due to age, the owners closed this beloved spot in 2017.
We appreciate good craftsmanship, and care deeply about our environment so we re-use and up-cycle wherever possible. These are just a few of the remnants from the former bath house Wakaba-Yu.
Goddess Shower bath
The Wakaba Class derived from the former name of this bath house called Wakaba-Yu.
We believe that a place with active well water is a place where life energy also bubbles up.
Kyoto is located in a basin surrounded by mountains on all sides. The rainwater that falls gathers along these mountains and becomes the groundwater that we use. Since ancient times, well water has been considered the source of life. The human body is roughly 70% water. Wakaba Yu had its own well water which was used for its baths and for drinking. The water quality was highly praised and many people traveled long distances to bathe in the waters of Wakaba Yu.
Since the previous pipes had deteriorated we needed to get them replaced. Thanks to the support of so many people we can now use this precious well water again. We are deeply grateful! The Wakaba-Yu well water was tested to check its safety and it passed with flying colours! You can see the great scores the water received in our Well Water Blog.
