How to enjoy Onsen, Japanese Style Hot Springs Bathing
Japanese style bathing is a bit different from western style, though, you can enjoy Onsen
like an expert once you understand basic knowledge of how to take Japanese bath.
Here's some tips on how to take a Japanese style bath.
You are only to go inside the bath tub after you washed your body.
First, you are to rinse your body with hot water.
Washing beforehand helps to keep the water in bath tub clean.
The rinsing and washing of your body with hot water also acclimatizes you to the actual
temperature of the bath tub. It is not advisable to jump into the water
like diving in to a swimming pool. Please use discretion.
Bring with you the small towel that will be provided for you and
please do not put the hand towel into the bath tub water.
Most people place the towel on their head. And remember do not use any soap
or shampoo or other skin cleansers in bath tub.
