fuji-san on sento (public bath) wall

the boys bath got the fuji-san...... hmmmm.... (see the girls bath in the next photo of my photostream!)

 

in the famous japanese animation film by miyazaki, 'spirited away' 千と千尋の神隠し, there is are bath scenes, and apparently they modeled the bath in the film on THIS bath! (a preserved 1929 bathhouse - from showa 4).
