Taking a bath, rather than taking a shower, is very popular in Japan and public bathing is an important part of the Japanese culture. In Japan there are two purposes to taking a bath: cleaning your body and refreshing your mind.
The first step is cleaning your body and this is done outside of the bath tub. Bathers sit on stools and wash their bodies using an attached shower head and hose.
Once you have finished rinsing off all soap and shampoo, step into the bath tub for a nice, relaxing soak. The bath tub can be very hot so you may not want to stay in for long. You can go in and out of the bath as many times as you like. Although many people are used to taking showers in the morning, it is a wonderful feeling to soak in a nice hot bath and relax your muscles at the end of the day.
If you are bathing in hot spring water, at the end of the bath it is best not to rinse your body with tap water – the minerals in hot spring water are often beneficial, and washing them off will stop them from taking full effect.
Please avoid horseplay and making loud noises in public or hot spring baths, as the atmosphere is meant to be conducive to relaxation and quiet conversation.
