Review: Very old, very hand built sento, lots of wood and thin, shaky glass. You can see every replaced tile. The history of this place shown bare in every crack, every gram of white grout. In the entry to the baths there is an outstanding teardrop shape tile I've never seen before. However, due to the condition, this sento is not for beginners. For a sento person, this is a must visit. Great photos on this blog. Visit Date: November 2020
