Japanese Name: 銭湯さん
Literal Translation: Mr. Bath House1
Released: 2001


Translation Notes
  1. Sentō (銭湯) is a type of Japanese communal bath house where customers pay for entrance. They were used before everyone had their own baths in homes. Now, usually only the older generation still use them and often go in groups for socialization. Like onsen, wearing any swimming clothing is taboo and everyone just bathes naked together. Sentou are different from onsen since the water does not come from the hot springs. Wikipedia: Sento
