Mild Warm Water and Warm Mind

 When walking through the Noren(a shop curtain),you can feel the atomosphere of the times when this bath house started around 100 years ago.
 Even now, this bath house is supplied with the ground water pumped up from the three wells and is heated by the firewood. The ground water is much milder and takes more time to cool down than the city water.
 Bathe in the mild, warm bath and make your heart warmer. After your comR)rtable bathing, you can have a supreme time with a bottle of cold milk.
