Is the bath private?
No, our communal baths are gender segregated by time of day, please see bathing schedule. But, you can book in for a massage (except Akasuri) any time of the day as the bath house and massage areas are separate.
Can I wear bathers?
No, it is completely naked in the bath, this is the traditional way and it makes perfect sense, as you must wash yourself with a washing cloth and rinse off before entering the baths. Slip into the hot waters of our baths without bathers for the truly unique Japanese bath house experience.
How long can I stay in the bath house?
The bathing times are shown in “Bathing Schedule” you can stay in the bath house as long as you like, so long as you adhere to the gender segregation schedule. We recommend an absolute min stay of 1.5hrs to truly relax your mind & body.
How many people will share the bath house with me?
Our baths are designed to seat four people comfortably, there are two baths and a 4-person steam sauna, we think that a maximum of 6 people should be the limit at any one time, any more and we would feel, that you may feel crowded and uncomfortable – Douzo tanoshinde (Please Enjoy).
How is the bath water cleaned?
We employ a constantly running two stage cleaning process utilising ozone treatment and ultraviolet light each process kills 99.89% of waterborne bacteria, when the processes are combined the water is far cleaner and healthier than anything that may come from a tap.
Can children bathe?
Toilet trained children from 6 to 16 may enter the baths in the company of a same gender parent, the baths are a quiet contemplative space so we ask that noise is kept to an absolute minimum at all times. Noisy or unruly patrons will be asked to leave.
Can I enter the Baths if I am Pregnant?
Yes. In Japan bathing is recommended after the 1st trimester up until the last month, you will feel wonderful and your baby will enjoy the warmth, but always do what you feel comfortable with.
