VIDEO: Head to a Japanese public bath for nice soak

Though you may believe all public baths in Japan are hot spring-fed onsen, the country offers another type of public bath, sento, which are also great for a nice soak. Sento are usually located in the center of town, providing a bath for people who did not have one at home. The refreshing atmosphere is a great place to relax in a large tub to soak off the hustle and bustle of the busy city.
