From the men bath a beautiful view on a mural waterfall. It has been realized from a photography of the owner and painted on tiles. Nowadays there is no artist performing this unique work. It represents the treasure of the family owning the sento. On the women side a beautiful view in the wood with some autumn trees, realized by the same artist. It is very relaxing and refreshing.
