Published on 06.03.2016 It may seem strange how something as simple as taking a bath can be such a huge part of Japanese culture, but people take their bathing time very seriously in Japan! For many overseas tourists, coming to Japan and spending some time at an onsen (Japanese hot springs resort) is a must-do unique cultural experience.

Hot springs are a very popular vacation spot for both Japanese and tourists alike, because there is no simply better place to relax, and soothe your tired body in Japan. Why not enjoy a soak in steamy hot water while enjoying the traditional Japanese atmosphere?

When you come to a hot spring in Japan however, there are a few rules to follow! First, make sure you are using the right bath! Most hot springs are not co-ed in Japan so remember the characters for man and woman: 男 and 女 respectively! Next, make sure you remove all articles of clothing and accessories before you walk into the bathing area. You can use your small washcloth for cover of your private areas if you are shy. When you enter the bathing area, splash some water on yourself near the entrance, and then immediately head to the shower area to clean yourself. In Japan, baths are strictly for soaking. Even in a private residence, the shower and bathtub are separate, so always make sure to shower off before entering the bathtub! Lastly, all that is left to do is enjoy the water and relax!

Although your first time at a Japanese hot spring may be a little intimidating, do not be afraid to go to one to have an unforgettable time in Japan!
