  • Please note! This bathhouse does not provide toiletries without towels, and it can be saved for a bit. The basic charge is 510 Japanese coins. The bathhouse is not very large if you have more than 30 minutes in straight island to try. The exterior of the bathhouse is very lovely and very distinctive, the bathhouse is very bright and clean.

  • Nice little, chill bath place. It wasn't crowded but there's only one bath. Friendly staff. Bring a towel or buy one. I personally liked the one in Uno better: a sauna and multiple indoor & outdoor pools, especially at sunset.
  • Exactly what you think it will be: a HOT bath with some showers. Excellent place to lay back for a bit after a day of walking around the island, especially if you need to warm up in the winter time. For about ¥800 you get entry and a small towel. I didn’t mind buying the small branded towel as it is a nice little souvenir to take home. I went around 5:15PM and it was only me and one other in the men’s section. After a few minutes he left and i had the place to myself for a bout an hour. Wish the music selection was a bit better but other than that had a great time just stretching out in the bath and enjoying the interesting art on the tiles.
  • Went to have a look after a long day's walk around Naoshima. Had planned to go in for a bath but the prices were a rort. Obviously priced opportunistically for tourists. From memory, it was ¥1450 for bath, towel, shampoo and soap. Around ¥500 for entry only. And for the shampoo and soap set, it was ¥500. Problem is, for a normal sento, shampoo and soap is included in the price of entry. Here it was not. And you were not allowed in without it. So if you did not have the preparation to carry both shampoo and soap to this sento (who does?), you'd have to pay ¥1000 to have a bath which is near extortionate. Even if you had the presence of mind to bring a towel. I left disgusted as I loathe tourist traps and do not want to support their like. The building itself is interesting with a mishmash of different things put together.
  • Nice bathhouse. Paid ¥1450 for entry, a towel, bag, body soap and shampoo. I went at 4pm and the place was nice and quiet, even had the place to myself for a good 20 minutes. Lots of interesting imagery to take in whilst soaking in the tub. The japanese tourists walking by seemed too scared to go in and made do with snapping photos and scurrying away. Seemed like only locals and foreign tourists had the stones to go in!
  • You’ll probably never find this anywhere else. A modern take on onsen, with interesting selection of painting and collage of all things assorted. Worth the experience and best of all tattoo friendly. 510 entry fee, a bit small but not very busy so you can enjoy the place to yourself. Would reccomend to anyone stopping by Naoshima.
