Day 7 Green Sauna, Public Sento, Hiratsuka, Japan 6 July 2012
As we strolled along the street of Tanabata Festival, I saw an English signboard "Green Sauna" from afar.
I walked in the shop to check if it was a "sento" (public bath). Thankfully, it was!! My children have wanted to try the public bath and it was our last day in Japan today.
I was only charged 1000yen (about RM40) for a bath. My children could follow me in without any charges!!
I brought my camera but didn't dare to bring it out of the closet, worrying other women at the bath might be concern if I took any of their bodies without clothing!! Hence, you are looking at the interior closet photo!!!!
As I was only charged for one person, I was given just one piece of towel. We have to remove our clothing at the closet area and I quickly wrapped myself with the towel provided. And when I turned around, my two little children, unclothed were staring at me, grinning. I tried not to laugh but pretended to be serious and normal. :)
My children were having fun bathing in the public whereas I was trying so hard to enjoy myself. hehe
