sento

Untitled One thing we've noticed is that our area has a lot of sento (scent-oh...public bathhouses).

We have several a couple of minutes walking distance away from where we live.

And since our furo (bath) does not have a reheating unit (it is super old!) we are probably gonna be using the neighborhood sento this winter.

Sento is more casual than onsen (hot springs).

Like onsen though most sento have a bathing fee.

You need to bring your own towel, soap, shampoo, etc.

And if you want to use the hair dryer afterwards, there is a fee too.

There was an article I found about some of the sento in our area here.

Hope to share with you our sento experience later this year.
