Kotobukiyu have tropical atmosphere a bit.
Laundromat and sento look like prefabricated house.
Sento interioir is simply decorated and keep neat.
Entering the dressing room, there are sansevierias in a row on the shelf near the ceiling.
It seems a little Tropical Island 😀
In the bathroom, there are foliage plants, such as chlorophytum.
And, the sento have an open-air bath made of rocks.
The sento is not spacious, but I was not pinched for the sento because of those interior decorations.
Also the sento have high ceiling.
Tile art of bathroom is, probably, it’s tropical island.
Maybe.Well, They seem wanting to make decorations like tropical island.
They doesn’t want to make a genuine, but a little tropical island cheaply in the sento.
The bath is just good 🙂
The bathwater of Hojyu-yu (medicinal bath) was not too hot. I could take the bath for a long time.
This is not lukewarm.
This day, I was exhausted, so my whole body felt smart.
As I took the bath some times, I didn’t feel the pain.I felt comfortably warm by the effective of medicinal bath 😀
Each faucets are divided by partitions, so there is no need to care of others.
I could use shower freely.
But, these faucets are firmly divided, so I forgot that there was a person in front of me, and I was very surprised that the person stood up suddenly.
I’m very pleased that there is an open-air bath.
Cool wind make me take a long bath.
Hot bath cause me a rush of the blood to the head.
Open-air bath is small and surround by the wall completely, so there is a sense of being oppressed.
But blue sky and running hot water, wild beauty bathtub made of rocks made me feel less uncomfortably.
I always meet hot bath these days, so at first I put my finger into the
bathwater timidly. “Oh?”
Then I tried to put my wrist . “What?”
Then I put my body into the bathtub.
Just good 😀
I was very happy, but felt deflated 😛
Comfortable bathwater made me take a very very long bath 😛
Lobby is spacious, and there sells some kinds of drinks.
Old men looked relaxed (They seemed to get tired by bathing :P)
If such a sento is near my house, I think I go there frequently.
But the sento have not many guests.
Well I want the original bath-tub that is written their sento name.
