Kansai Seen: Life through the lens of Kansai based photographers
[box]This historic sento near Toji temple in Kyoto was recently selected as a location for the movie Mother Water (2010), directed by Matsumoto Kana. Interestingly the usual brightly colored noren curtains were swapped out during filming for more subtle ones. Grab your shampoo and scrub yourself down with the locals in this fantastically retro bath house while it is still open for business.
