Onsen – Rules and Manners

Go Naked! No swim suit.
It is Japanese traditional culture of Japan, everyone goes into a bath together
nakedly.
Don’t be shameful!
Let’s enjoy together Onsen Bath!

Be clean! Wash your XXX first.
Before entering the bathtub, it is customary to lightly wash your lower body outside the tub.
After that, you get in the bathtub and soak for a while.

No drunk person inside the bathtub.
Usually, the temperature of Onsen is at least 40degrees (40℃).
So it is not good for your health for heavy drunk person to take or soak the bathtub.
To enjoy Onsen safely, please do not take the bath after drinking too much.

Do not put towel inside the bathtub.
There are two major rules to take Onsen.
First, you should now allow your wash-towel or any soap into the bathtub.
Secondly, when you leave the bath, you do not drain the water.
These manners come from the fact that you are not the only person to use the bath water in the tub.

I'm not sure I would enjoy the bath, but the breakfast looks very attractive, although maybe a bit formal.

Such a ceremonious setting even for breakfast. Gives a warm feeling and the message ......life is made to enjoy rather than rushed through. Nice closeups.
