    Tokyo Minato-ku Minamiaoyama 3-12-3
    A public bathhouse in Minami-Aoyama which was established a century ago. In spite of this long history, the facility was remodeled and renovated a few years ago, and the bathhouse has a sleek, modern exterior. The interior is also bright and clean, engendering an atmosphere which ensures that women will also feel comfortable entering and enjoying the bathhouse's comforts. The facility sells a full array of bathing garments and amenities, and bathers are free to come empty-handed and pick up what they need on-site. The bathhouse's Silky Bath generates fine carbonation bubbles, turning the water a milky white, and every Thursday herbal bathing salts are also added, further enhancing its beautifying properties.

    I went there with my two daughters and had a disappointing experience. The young ladies working the front were so unfriendly, no smiles, just cold glares. I could not understand because we dont...

    鉄道の駅からは、かなりは、かなり離れていますが、最寄りの駅は、新京成線の「松戸新田」か「稔台」です。 路線バスが、一番早く行ける方法です。 1階が駐車場、2階が銭湯、食堂、床屋になっていて、リラックスできますが、お客さんは男性が多いかも・・・・

    Ibaraki Tsuchiura-shi Manabeshinmachi 20-43

    ドライブの途中で立ち寄り。土日料金は100円高く810円で出入りはできません。 なにげにサウナと思って入ったところが『塩サウナ』。中に塩がいっぱいあり、身体にすり込み、汗で溶ける迄待ちます。温度はあまり高くないので負担はありません。 出てからシャワーで洗い流すとなんとお肌がツルツルしっとり。びっくりです。

    Hokkaido Hakodateshi Yayoichou 14-9
    A public bath facility which has been a popular social gathering place for local residents since the Taisho period in 1914. The bathhouse is located over a hill travelling from Hakodate Dock-Mae Station on the city light rail line. The current building was built in 1928, replacing the former bathhouse. Notable for its distinctive exterior mixing Western and Japanese influences, a rarity for such a structure across the entire country, the interior retains such retro touches as old-fashioned scales and a staff watch stand. The facility has been designated a scenic landmark by the city of Hakodate and has been used for filming movies as well.

    Taishou-yu is a sentou (public bath) in a pretty western style building completed in 1928 and still in business. It is locared in the temple district of Funamichou. I had to stop to take a photo of...

    Fukushima Iwaki-shi Jobanyumotomachi Tennozaki 1-8
    This public bathhouse is located in front of JR Yumoto Station. The Higashiyu public bathhouse was built in 2007 to replace the aging former one in the Sahako area. The bathhouse nearest to the station, it was designed to resemble a Joban Coal Mine coal factory and brick factory. The beams and walls in the lobby are made of cedar cut from the forest of the local Joban Yumoto financial ward. There are two types of cleansing baths: hot and normal temperature. Many tourists visit the bathing facility, which is within walking distance from the station, while waiting for trains.

    250円で入浴できます。 浴槽は1種類ですが、温泉なので温まります。 むかしながらの銭湯のような温泉浴場でした。

    ここあけぼの湯は都営新宿線船堀駅から徒歩7-8分の駅近にあって、都内最古で泉質重視の銭湯でもあって460円で入浴出来ます。湯の特徴は東京湾沿岸のいわゆる黒湯でなく、無色透明・無味無臭の透明な温泉で、温泉分析書もちゃっとありますから。また、追加料金を支払えばサウナもOKです。

    日曜日ということもあって、大勢の方が待っていました。駐車場は国道沿いは満車ですが、中に入ると数台の駐車場があります。食事開店まえは1時間以上待ちで、時間待ちに塩湯へ入りました。海水ですが湯上りは思ったよりサラサラ感。

    Mie Ise-shi Jinkyu 1-1-16
    This bathhouse stands on the Seta River. Here you can soak in waters containing an abundance of minerals and warm your body to the very core. The bathhouse' baths are filled with seawater from Futamiura, the same water used by visitors to the Ise Jingu shrine since time immemorial to purify body and soul. Out of a desire to make it possible for people to purify themselves according to Shinto tradition in the bathhouse before visiting the shrine, the bathhouse replaces the waters in its baths twice a day in the morning and in the evening. The bathhouse is replete with a Futamiura sweater outdoor bath, roiling bath, micro bubble bath, and a far-infrared sauna. Note that the bathhouse does not provide shampoo or other amenities; you must bring your own or purchase them at the front desk. The bathhouse is a 10-minute walk from Iseshi Station.

    駅から近いわけでもなく、地元の人向けでしょうか。階段を上り、下駄箱。待合所にはテレビがあり、何故か振り子時計がたくさん展示してあります。レトロというか不思議な雰囲気⁈ で、肝心の風呂は、脱衣所は壁際にロッカーがあり狭い感じはなく。内風呂はジャグジーの深いのと浅いの、電気風呂、水風呂、と小さいのがひしめき合う感じ。これ伊勢の傾向でしょうか...
