Japanska hot springs, Onsen, oj shit vilka massa regler. Dessutom ska man tydligen vara helnäck, och så får man inte doppa huvudet, eller håret, i vattnet. Det låter lite jobbigt. Men så länge man följer reglerna och tar hänsyn till alla omkring en så ska det tydligen gå bra. Fast jag måste nog träna lite först om jag ska våga.
If you’re planning to come to Japan, I believe that trying out the hot springs, or onsen in Japanese, is on your to-do list. Because Japan has many mountains and volcanoes, there are more than 20,000 onsen facilities in total. Hot springs have been an important part of Japanese culture since ancient times. Although onsen is a place where you can relax and refresh, you might be a little worried about how to properly do things. I’ve actually received some requests for this video through the comments and Instagram. Because onsen are a kind of public space, there are actually quite a lot of rules in order for everyone to peacefully enjoy their time there. So today, I will introduce eight basic rules on how to enjoy onsen, which are presented by most onsen facilities. By watching this video, you will be able to have a truly refreshing time when visiting these facilities. At the end of the video, as a resident in Kyoto I would like to introduce my favorite onsen which I recommend to you. But before I start! As I always say in these “manner” videos, I don’t want anyone to be too nervous when visiting an onsen. ●京都嵐山温泉 花伝抄 Kadenshō https://www.japanican.com/hotel/japan…
