Sentos (public bath-houses) have a history going back to the 6th century. At that time they were connected with Buddhist temples, but in the Edo Period (1603-1868) they gained popularity as places for citizens to keep clean, enjoy soaking in large bathtubs and socialize with neighbors. The tradition of the sento is alive and well today, and many people enjoy bathing to refresh mind and body at these hubs of relaxation and communication. What’s more, recent scientific research indicates that bathing in a bathtub larger than the one at home has benefits in terms of warmth, buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure that strengthen the immune system and promote beauty.
We sincerely hope that after viewing this website, more people will engage with the culture of the sento and enjoy bathing there!
