(141) And for the bath?

If there is a deity for the toilets it is only reasonable that there will also be one for the most sacred of all Japanese spaces, the bath. Batsunabara-bosatsu, welcomes anyone entering for their evening o-furo (bath) holding an oar-shaped stick so he can stir the hot water.
