The bathhouse might be a brothel


This solution has helped 19 people

Spirited Away is one of Studio Ghibli's most famous films. That's why it comes as no surprise that theories about the movie would spring up. An interesting theory is a possibility of Yubaba's bathhouse actually being a brother. The signage in front of the bathhouse reads "Yu" which means hot water. Seems rather tame? Well, women in prostitution used to conduct their deeds in a bathhouse. Get this, the women in charge of the bathhouse were also called Yubaba. Coincidence? You might find other parts in this movie that fits that narrative.
