Review: I love the tower above this retro futuristic smooth concrete building with おふろやさん written on it in neon lights. This is a municipal bath run by the local village. Staff were friendly but the locals were surprised by the hairy white guy. A single bath with three levels of deepness and a cool kakari basin is all that's available here. Make sure to enjoy the rocky garden that offers a bit of a sky view behind the window lined rear wall. Also make sure to check out the community gallery with children’s artwork in the entrance.
