I loved it - and if you do have the time don't miss it. If you are stressing around sites - perhaps a short visit will still be welcome - I just spent 30 minutes had a breather and a dip. It has a lovely spirit and in worst case it could serve as inspiration for your next bathroom...

great place to soak your bones after a long day of museum hopping. This place should be on your radar as it is also an art installation. The entire experience was a trip from entering and figuring out the ticket machine to the art in the sento. Very clean and comprised mainly of locals when I was there.

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! Also possible to purchase there. All in all a very relaxing experience and worse a... More

When in Japan, you should experience the communal bath at least once. This one is traditional in most respects except that it's also an art installation itself! Lovely. We had visited a traditional bath in Kyoto a few nights before where the customers were almost entirely old women, making us the youngest ones there, while here in Naoshima we were... More

We had to leave the island because a typhoon was due and we didn't want to get trapped. It started to rain just as we got there so we cancelled our bath plans and went back for our luggage. It looks amazing on the outside and the interior is even more quirky apparently. I've been told to take 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 cost extra) but the decor is engaging and it is clean. Very quite different than... 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.
