How to Onsen in Japan
Let’s learn about important Onsen Manners!
Japan’s famous hot springs are called “onsen” and you can find them all over Japan. They are super popular among the locals as a great way to relax. If you’re experiencing the onsen for the first time, it can be quite daunting with the nudity and special etiquette. We would like to guide you through the rules and steps on how to properly take an onsen.
Onsen baths are places of relaxation. Do not swim or become a nuisance to others.
Another important note. When you are done, wipe your body with a small towel before returning to the dressing room so that the dressing room floor will not get too wet.
