The architecture of this onset is an awesome reminder of the past.
As soon as you enter the doorway, there is a booth to pay on your right. You decide whether you are going to take a bath or to have a sand bath. You are issued a yukata to change in. You need your own towel and yen for the locker fee. They rake a spot for you to lie down in. Your head is resting on a wooden block for a pillow. They slowly pour warm sand onto your body starting from your feet first. The neat part is they will scoop sand under your neck and behind your shoulders to support you which felt nice. They carefully watch the clock to signal to you when to brush off the sand and get up. Your body immediately starts to heat up. Not a burning hot feeling, I only got that sensation on my heels, but your head starts to perspire. If you bring a small washcloth they wipe away your perspiration as your hands are covered in the mount. After that, you rinse off and you can soak in the little tub. You have the chance to cool off in the open lobby area where their are vending machines for drinks, ice cream. Later you can go to the regular bath if you want to. The sand burial place is co-ed as you are in a yukata, but the other bath areas are gender specific.
