In the great tradition of Japanese public baths, Kabuki’s communal bath is designed to encourage harmony and relaxation.
Facilities include a hot pool, cold plunge, dry sauna, and steam room. Individual bathing areas include traditional Japanese-seated showers and standing western-style showers. You are welcome to enjoy the complimentary bath products, sea salts, chilled face cloths, and teas. The communal baths include a full-time bathing attendant.
Please turn off your cell phone and other electronics. Allow this time to be about disconnecting.
Keep your locker key with you at all times.
It is traditional to shower before using the pools
You may begin with the dry sauna (150 degrees) or the steam room (120 degrees)
Reinvigorate with the cold pool (55 degrees)
Rest, relax, and rehydrate

Communal Bath Wait List:
When we reach capacity, a paperless wait list for entry will be available at the front desk. Though you must be present to receive a locker key, you will not lose your place on our wait list if you leave our waiting area. You have the option to be texted when we have a key available for you. Japantown and Fillmore Street are filled with many spots to fill anyone’s appetite with cafes, sushi bars, and boutiques. We do not limit the time while you are bathing, therefore we cannot foresee when the next locker key will be available. The wait list for our communal baths is often longer on Tuesday nights, and all day Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
Communal Bath with Body Treatment or Facial:
If you would like to enjoy the baths immediately upon your arrival, we suggest that you schedule a massage or treatment. If you have a massage or treatment appointment and are using the communal facilities, you will not need to sign our waiting list. We suggest arriving at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment to enjoy the baths.
