Review:Went to this sento after a very difficult hike in the summer. Was able to get in before the sun went down and I really enjoyed the small outdoor bath. The cold water bath was also outstanding! One of the few sentos that I have been to recently that was somewhat surprised to see a non-Japanese customer. No problems however.Visit Date: July 2017

ReviewBasic chain supersento, somewhat close to the station. Nice large shallow second floor bath on the roof that has a good view of the mountains and the planes landing at Itami Airport. The water is better than I remember it the first time I went. Nice and firm on the skin. It is a very strong well. You can see how this supersento has downsized what was once a second bath and a sleeping bath has now become a wooden sleeping/sitting area. Still with the great large rotenburo those two extra baths will not be missed.
