Japanese Bathhouse

Japanese Bathhouse

NEW! See restoration plans and ‘in process’ photos below. After a hard day’s work in the fields, many Japanese-American farmers enjoyed a nice soak in the furoba. The day’s cares and worries dissolved in the warm waters. The Hori family built their bathhouse in 1930s next to their home, the Neely Mansion.
