Ohayo, in my ongoing quest for the bestest onsen/sentó in Second Life, today I tried yet another roleplay sim:
Village of Hirado-shi 平戸市. A Japanese themed Sim. All are welcome to come explore and enjoy our wonderful village.
I dunno what kind of RP is going on here, I guess mostly nothing at all. When I went bathing in the Hirado-shi onsen I was the only avie on the whole sim. Still, all nice and considerate, I wore the Out Of Character tag that is offered to all visitors upon arival in the truly stylish and beautiful sim. I guess it’s supposed to be Japan in the edo period … but what do I know about Japan …
CONCLUSION: Hirado-shi has the nicest onsen I’ve seen so far in SL. Amakuni Yu Sentó might be closest to the RL experience but its mundane urban setting isn’t the most soothing or visually appealing. It’s clearly a modern day onsen. So all in all I guess Hirado-shi onsen is the nicest. But don’t expect too much in the sense of bathing fun, this onsen is purely made for it’s visual appearance. Still perfect for parking your avie for a lengthy period of time and just let her soak while you are doing the RL stuff. 🙂
