the baths at Centrair

 In a previous post from September,
I mentioned that there was an onsen at Centrair (technically it is a sentou, or a bath house).

This time around, I had the time to give the place a try. As a modern facility it lacks the charm of a more traditional bath, but has a great view of the tarmac, Ise Bay, and on a clear day, Mie Prefecture beyond. The panorama includes the large cargo vessels quietly and gently moving across this major maritime shipping route which, as shown here, can be a thing to contemplate. (Incidentally, the Port of Nagoya is Japan's largest and busiest).

This also marked for me the first time sketching in the nude.
