Published on 04.27.2016 Sento is a Japanese public bath. You might hear of the word “onsen”, which is also another type of public bath in Japan. The difference between sento and onsen is that the onsen is more on the country-side or nice hotel where there is a hot spring and that sento is just a public communal bath where the water is hot. Another difference between the two is that onsen or hotspring is more traditional than the sentou and it would be harder with people with tattoo to be accepted in the onsen.
When visiting the sento, there are some rules or bathing etiquette that needs to be follow and observe. First, when you walk through the door of a sento, you need to take your shoes and put them in the shoe locker. Then you should pay at the lady b in the counter and then head straight to the changing area. The changing area has lockers where you will keep your valuable things. The only thing you need in the bathing area is a small towel to wash yourself with and to cover your privates. Don't forget to bring any soaps, shampoos and other bathroom utensils you might like to use (toothbrush, razor, etc.). Before entering the baths, you should scrub yourself in the washing area that has small tools, hot and cold taps and showers. You should wash your whole body and rinse well. The small towel you brought in should not be taken into the water but rather left on the rim of the bath. When you are done soaking, you should wipe your body with the towel before entering the changing area. These steps might be complicated for foreigner and guest who visit sento for the first time but seeing a foreigner do things right fills the Japanese with delight, or so some say. In any event, knowing the rules will make your visit more enjoyable and for some more genuinely Japanese.
