    I see. In the past, sentou were everywhere, even in a little town, but, nowadays, they are getting fewer because everyone has a bath in home.

    General public baths are 400 yen. And super sentou (deluxe bath, usually hot spring) are 700 yen.

    But I know 140 yen public baths. (Because I live in countryside)
    (50 minutes from home, by walk, though)

    See you! 🙂

    I do not know about sentou yet. But it sounds interesting, hopefully a time when I went Japan can see it. In our country the public baths are usually only in the hot spring or waterboom.

    Not major leisure, hmm.

    I love public bath. In Japan, there are many sentou(public bath, we call).

    I’m now seeing around Lombongo, by Google Maps, because I like virtual travelling too!

    Thanks for the info. 😀
