ReviewGreat huge sento down a shopping street not far from the station. There are so many great things about this bathhouse it is hard to describe it all. This one does it right. It is very family friendly too. There are fish tanks in the walls and a small, but very comfortable outdoor area. All of the baths use softened water also for that great smooth feeling.

ReviewThe closest sento to Shin-Osaka. Interesting building that looks like an apartment building more than a sento. Small but enjoyable rotenburo and good cold water bath. Great place to remember if you are traveling through Shin-Osaka.

ReviewIt's a simple Osaka-style (baths in the middle) sento with a lot of heart. The owner in the bandai was pleasant, the young guys hanging out in the (small but refreshing) rotenburo were fun to talk to, the baths were clean and hot. I cannot ask for much more than that. No need to travel out of the way to try this one, but if you are in the neighborhood it is a good option.
