Yudo: The Way Of The Bath

Architect Shiro returns to his hometown with one goal in mind: to finally shut down the family business, a long-running bathhouse named Marukin Hot Spring. When an unfortunate accident lands Shiro’s brother Miura in a hospital bed, bathhouse employee Izumi encourages Shiro to step up to the plate and temporarily run the business. Shiro is initially a reluctant proprietor, but his encounters with the various regular customers soon have him reassessing his priorities in life. Yudo is a charming, light-hearted celebration of Japan’s culture of communal bathing.
