I’m so thankful to have found this Onsen/Sento. They openly allowed my large tattoos and even called them “Kawaii”. The inside had 4-5 baths depending how you count them, one electric which was cool and super weird haha.. and then outside there is a cold...More

Not actually an onsen, but a lovely sento with several different indoor baths, a sauna, and a wooden outdoor tub. Visited several times during my stay in Nishijin. Always friendly service, and very clean. Seemed to be popular with other travellers as well as locals.

The place itself was nice, although a bit overpriced considering that it's not using a proper hot spring. However, it's a foreign tourist magnet and not really a very relaxing place to bathe as a result. I'd much rather visit an onsen that only the...More

self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of
the city, it is a district where you can take it at
your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving
and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many
