Review:This one goes into the category of between a sento and supersento. Still normal sento pricing. Modern design with a good selection of baths. The locals here come for the the 50 yen sauna. I can tell they like it as they all follow the rules--bath towels all wrapped around the waist, washing off before going into the cold bath. Pretty small actually but it feels big on moderately busy Saturday night when I went. Good electric, medicated and outdoor bath. Sadly the outdoor shower is broken and the cold water bath was a bit small, but the selection of other baths made it fine. Family friendly place. I liked it!Visit Date: October 2019

Review*CLOSED* Small. Very small. That said it has the highest quality well of all the Yamato no Yu chain supersento that I’ve been to. The water has a good silky feel to it that stays with you well after getting out of the bath. Sadly the locker room and bathing areas are small. So are the entrance and lounge areas—this is common for the Yamato no Yu chain however. When I went the heater for the main shallow indoor bath was broken it was being filled with the spring water at its natural temperature of about 37 degrees and I loved it. Mia had a ton of fun in the warm water. It is a great contrast to the heated spring water in the outdoor baths. So again, it is small. Too small. try to go on a normal weekday and not a holiday night like we did. If you live in the area, be happy you have pretty decent supersento near by.
