Loved the ambience, decor and music. Super clean facility. Bathing facility is a little small for a public bath but confortable. A price is a little high considering the size of the bath and fact that no soap / towels are provided. Bring your own!...More

This bath house (which I have seen called I love yu) is fun and quirky. Located close to the port. A great thing to do after a day of walking around checking out the town. It's a bit small and no frills (towels and soap...More

Really worth a visit to see bath/locker room interior. Not your traditional 銭湯 (neighborhood bathhouse)! But they're not terribly friendly compared to other places and bring your own soap or you'll have to buy some.

One of the nicest baths I have visited in Japan. Bright clean and artistic. Came out very relaxed. The staff was very kind to foreigners and we always need some help.

I never saw any children at any of the bathhouses I visited in Japan, only adult women (and men, on their side). There's nowhere to put a baby while you're washing, no child "seat" or childcare facility. From what I've read... More
