ReviewFuji no Yu is a large sento tucked off of busy intersection across from Toyama’s nightlife district. From the outside you would think that the inside would be the same drab austere tile, but it was pleasantly cluttered inside. This is a basic bandai style bath where you pay after entering. A very elderly grandmother was minding the bandai when I came in. The baths were piping hot which is good during the cold Toyama winter. The bubble and jets both were strong and refreshing. The cold, cold water bath was very deep and great to ease into. There is a long dry sauna along the side wall that was turned off when I was there for whatever reason. Next to the door are two showers facing each other one hot and the other cold. I wonder if the regulars here like turning them both on at the same time. Not much character to this bath, but refreshing and somewhat conveniently located.

Review*Closed* Brilliant local sento and just a few minutes from Toyama Station. Hot water with a simple but enjoyable selection of baths. The old building is also quite beautiful.
