How to use Onsen

In recent years, the springs have become recognized by modern medicine for their soothing and rehabilitative properties. There are many cultural elements and traditions that have sprung out from the use of 'Onsen', or hot springs.

1. Enter the changing room through the appropriate entrance: for Women or for Men pick up a small wash towel.
2. Remove your clothes and put them in the basket or locker provided. Take only the small wash towel.
3. Keeping your privates covered with the wash towel, enter the bathing area, closing any door behind you.
4. Wash or rinse your body briefly using the showers / faucets before entering the first time. There are stools and basins available for use at the faucets.
5. Soak in the pool, being careful not to get too hot.
6. Wash your body at the faucets.
7. After your last dip in the Onsen, DO NOT rinse again.

Onsen Etiquette
- Remember to remove footwear at the entrance (genkan). Put them into cubicles, if provided.
- Do not wear bathing suits, or any article of clothing in the bath (unless otherwise specified).
- First, wash your body briefly before entering the tub. After soaking in the tub, clean your body with soap in the washing area. Do NOT use soap in the bathtub. Rinse suds completely before returning to the bath.
- Do not bring your large bath towel into the bath, most baths provide a small towel with which to wash and to cover yourself.
- Washing clothes is not allowed.
- Wring out the small towel and use it to dry yourself before returning to the changing area.
