Before entering the Hot Springs, patrons of a Public Bathhouse are asked to clean themselves off. As I have mentioned a couple of posts back; institutions like this are meant more for relaxation then anything else. So, cleaning yourself before entering a shared spaced as intimated as a community bath, is greatly appreciated.
Here we have the pair in the middle of washing off in the shower room. As you can see, taikou has created rows of shower stands with stools along with two large steamy baths; if showering isn’t your thing. Shampoo and conditioner is also kindly provided incase you may have forgotten to bring your own.
Next comes my favorite locations, the outdoor Hot Springs!!
