There's nothing quite like a bath for a spot of relaxation – except for a giant one. Owned by Jerome Borazio's sister (he of St Jerome's Laneway Festival, 1000 Pound Bend and umpteen dozen other awesome ventures around town) – this is a haven in the very heart of the city: a quiet place to relax, unwind and soak away cares and rough elbows.
As a traditional Japanese bathhouse, you're gonna have to get nude in front of fellow patrons (segregated between ladies and gents) – but it's worth it. Step up the level of self-care and go for a shiatsu massage. Better yet, get in early for the early bird deal from Monday to Friday before noon and bathe for a measly 18 bucks.
