Matsu No Yuu

One of two old sentou (bathhouses) near to Funabashi. This one has the real traditional style with a tall chimney out the back and a thing that looks like a staircase jutting out of the side. It was on the walks of a book I have about "Chiba Water Walks", and as I've done the walk many times, I've passed it by on several occasions.
The entrance way has the usual curtains and a row of lockers to put your shoes in. I've heard that sentou often have a big picture of Fuji-san on the wall by the bath, but I've never had the courage to actually go to one to check this.
