松乃湯 – the local sentou

After visiting a sentou in Tokyo with Shirokuma I got hooked. It is an amazing feeling to go in to your neighborhood sentou, wash off the days dirt and then sit in the hot water for as long as you can manage it. Kind of a rebirth. Not as amazing as a good ice swimming after a sauna but pretty close 🙂

So when I moved to Katsuura I was hoping I will find one here too. Walking through the town I was lucky to bump in to it 🙂

Then one night we decided to visit with Eric

This is what you see when you enter:

They even have a medieval turture massage chair from a few centuries back

We had the bath for the two of us, no other guests at the time.
It was amazing! If you ever come to Japan don’t miss the onsen / sentou experience!
