Review: Very friendly sento. Great selection of tiles on the inside; check out the red and white vaporwave feeling tiles in the showers in the rear. Unfortunately, this sento is showing its age. The jets are weak, like the steam sauna and some mirrors are corroded. However, everything felt fresh on the sunny evening when I visited. I came here after a relatively long hike, so the 1.5-person big cold water bath was lovely. It wasn't too cold or too warm. The steam sauna could have been a little hotter but enjoyable. The best bath was the enclosed outdoor area with a small shallow circular bath treated with salt. Overall, while some of the facilities are getting of a certain age, the entire place was very fresh and friendly, and the locals were chatty. This includes the friendly young lady working the Bandai when I came in. Not worth going out of your way for, but a great example of what a sento should be.

Review: This sento was featured on Tantei! Knight Scoop for its very strong jet bath. While it is very strong it is hard to say it is the strongest one that I’ve felt—as implied by the show. Nevertheless, this is a strong jet and just what I needed on this afternoon visit. The steam sauna, outdoor bath and cold-water baths were also quite enjoyable. This is a very clean sento and, despite what a recent Google Maps review says, the locals take good care of it. They might treat it like home, but they treat it well. It's a bit of a walk from any station but worth it to see such a nicely kept, cleaned, and run sento. Recommended.

Review: A big, clean very open sento that has been remodeled sometime recently. The steam bath was better than average. However, the outdoor bath and cold bath were fairly small. A few good quirks here. First is they have two doors to get into the bath from changing room. Next, make sure to check out the koi pond in front of the toilet in the outside garden area. The dry sauna (+¥200) is through a room separated from the main bath the back of the sento—something I’ve never seen before. Lastly are the oddly large shoe lockers. Note: a sign says no tattoos in the front. Highly recommended. Visit Date: October 2021

Yu~Bath Moriguchi

Japanese Name: ユーバス守口店Prefecture: OsakaCity: MoriguchiAddress: 大阪府守口市佐太中町6丁目23−26Access: Dainichi Station / 大日駅Type: Supersento w/ natural hot springWebpage: ¥770 (Sunday & Holidays: ¥850)Holiday: NoneHours: 6:00-24:00ReviewThe best of the Yu~Bath supersentos that I have been to. I love the water. There's a few cooler baths. Not much to be said for design it is pretty basic. Using the waterfall bath can end up spraying water on everyone around you. There are two warm straight from the well tub baths outside which are the best and also very popular. Good luck getting in one of them. I have seen some bad mannered children and adults here, especially on busy holiday nights. Might be best to visit here on a weekday. Keep an eye out for coupons for this place even floating around the lobby.
