Review:Great steam sauna at this well used sento just north of Kawanishi-Noseguchi station. This one is right on the border of me saying it needs a good cleaning. I would not take a first timer here, but I think someone who often goes to sento will find Gokuraku-yu very welcoming. Lots of interesting tile throughout the place, but especially in the steam sauna.Visit Date: October 2020


Japanese Name: 石道Prefecture: HyogoCity: KawanishiAddress: 兵庫県川西市石道下ノ垣内216−1Closest Station: Category: Hot Spring Hotel w/ day useWebpage: http://www.ishimichi.com/Price: ¥1000Holiday: TuesdayHours: 11:00-22:00Review:A hidden gem in the mountains above Osaka. The spring water here is drinkable and potent. Inside the baths look like they were last refurbished in 1985 and have not been changed since then. There is a standing fan in the men's changing room that was built in the 1970's. Oh yea and there are baths. Inside are some basic baths and a sauna. The central bath that has jets that spin the water clockwise is pretty unique. The main reason to come here is the rotenburo that is filled with the heated spring water. From the men's bath you can see the well. The water is opaque and the mineral buildup along the walls of the bath are impressive. Sadly there is no well temperature bath here, just the heated version. Great secret place worth the drive. ...and there are peacocks in the parking lot. Peacocks are gone... bummer
Update: Still around, still great! The seating for the sauna on the men's side is getting pretty rickety however!

Review:Supersento built into a new shopping center near KawanishiNoseguchi Station. No other supersento are in the area so it is a good location. This one has a gym and day use focus. No natural hot spring in the bath but there is a bath salts tub. Great jets. A killer sauna that self mists making it quite strong. Thankfully there is a decently sized cold water bath and many warm carbonated baths to complement it. Big on sauna people it seems.
