How to Enjoy Hot Springs

Hot springs are public baths, so please follow the rules.

How to Use Hot Spring Baths

  1. 1. Before entering the hot spring tub, pour hot water over your body.

    It is common to pour water over your feet and arms first, followed by your head.

  2. 2. Enter the tub slowly.

    Lower your body quietly from the feet first until half of your body is submerged in water.
    Once the bottom half of your body has warmed up, lower the rest of your body until your shoulders are submerged in water.

  3. 3. Do not stay in the water for too long at a time. Leave the tub after a while and take a break before entering again.

    It is recommended that you do not use a hot spring bath for more than three times in a day.

Manners at a Hot Spring Bath

  1. 1. Wash your body and hair at the washing area.

  2. 2. Make sure that there is no soap left on your body before you enter the tub.

  3. 3. Do not wash your clothes at the washing area.

  4. 4. Do not dip your towel in the tub.

  5. 5. Do not splash around when you are in the tub.
