Something I really wanted to experience while in Japan was soaking in a public bath, but I had so much anxiety because I have a rather large, colorful tattoo on my shoulder. Most public baths have a very strict no tattoo policy and I respect...More

This place is absolutely the best bathing experience I had in Japan. Just to avoid misunderstanding, this is a sentō. Both sentō and onsen are public baths. A sentō is always a public bath house, while an onsen can be an outdoor hot spring. In...More

Cool designer onsen in the main town, so if you like Japanese baths then this is a good place to visit. Large elephant statue in between the male and female sides, with unique murals and designs on the tiles.

The place is within walking distance of the Ferry Pier. We didn't pay to go inside, but took a few snaps outside, which was very colourful & decorated.

Fun and odd to look at the art while bathing. Couple who run the place are very friendly. Definitely the most unique onsen you will visit in Japan.

Scrupulously clean and fascinating art including huge elephant. English speaking assistant and helpful English signs make it all easy. A great way to break a busy day.

I never saw any children at any of the bathhouses I visited in Japan, only adult women (and men, on their side). There's nowhere to put a baby while you're washing, no child "seat" or childcare facility. From what I've read... More
