INSPIRATION:
SENTO is a public bath popular in Japan for about 700 years. It not only improves the local hygiene environment but also functions as a community place for local people. Various people visit the public bath every day from old people to children. There is a environment that can help each other. People are concerned about each other's physical condition, parents can wash their bodies while other guests are talking about their small children. The public bath has solved regional problems like the isolation of the elderly and parents. However, in recent years, public baths are on a downward trend. As customers and managements aged, the image that “SENTO is outdated" was established among people. "Is SENTO we love really outdated? Is not it necessary now that SENTO is a community place for local people?" This is the question that triggered us to this project. First of all, we launched a website named “TOKYO SENTO”, so that public bathes is recognized in the world, we started disseminating information of public bathes. And in order for young people to gather in public bathes, we rebranded it. By doing so, our website became a platform that young people who likes public bathes are likely to gather. It disseminating various projects relevant by rebranding. And created a community that young people who in various occupations with a challenging mind who want to realize in society. In the process of this activity, we also faced another social problem. It is a problem of how young people work. We found that Young people likes public bathes have many problems. - They are tired of overwork. - They can’t enjoy their job, because the existing job is no longer development. - Their life plan is an unstable, because the concept of lifelong employment has collapsed. - They want to connect with people because they feel insecure about the future. However we found that they have motivation to contribute something to society, to change society itself. We developed SENTO as a local community. In addition, by developing the public bath as a new market, we also created an environment where young people can work a new way of working. We raise the value as a necessary place for the community as a community of public bath by the power of design. And we give people who has a motivation to contribute something to society opportunity of realize it in this society. TOKYO SENTO can provide new public bathes and new way of working that suits this era.
