We’re taking the new, outgoing JETs to the Sento! In talking with many of them, we learned that they are curious about the idea of Japanese public bathhouses, known as sento. Luckily in Chicagoland we have access to King Spa, which is very near to the experience. JETAA Chicago will host a “Sento-duction” for them, welcoming them to experience sento with JET alums and learn more about onsen, sento, and Japanese bathing customs.

We are currently looking to put a carpool together to help transport people in various locations to Niles. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in attending and if you can help with the carpool! Please also consider RSVPing to the event on the Facebook event page.
