What is onsen?
The program of such tours includes a visit to Japanese thermal springs – onsen. In the country, a member of the Pacific Ring of Fire known for its high volcanic and seismic activity, there are over 2,000 such springs. Bathing in onsens has long been an integral part of Japanese culture. They were once simple natural open-air pools that still survive today in small villages in mountainous areas.
What is an onsen
Today build and indoor onsen, located, as a rule, in expensive hotels in large cities. They may differ in size, water temperature, its chemical composition (hydrogen sulfide, iron, salt, etc.). Japanese people treat in onsens such diseases as arthritis and hypertension, nervous system and skin diseases, vascular and gynecological problems. Besides, taking a thermal bath strengthens the immune system and increases vital tonus. An additional advantage for ladies is a rejuvenating effect of thermal water, which removes toxins, cleanses and softens the skin.
Rules of visiting
Going to an onsen for a Japanese is not just a means of washing or having a good time, but a whole ritual, which necessarily includes admiring the beauty of nature (as springs are usually located outdoors) and enjoying the harmony. To achieve complete harmony, many Japanese like to take a cup of heated sake with them.
Rules of Attendance
In an onsen, everyone is equal and must abide by certain rules:
– Before taking a dip in the healing water, you must take a shower.
– It is not customary at today’s bathing establishments to be openly naked, so be sure to bring a towel and wrap up in it outside the pool. If the spring is located at a hotel, guests usually receive a special kimono that is used when visiting the onsen.
– While in the swimming hall, one should not make too much noise or behave too vigorously. Peace and contemplation are encouraged.
Rules of Attendance
– Some onsens allow both sexes to bathe together, while others allow men and women to bathe in shifts.
To shake off fatigue and relax, enough one or two days of stay at the springs. But if the purpose of the visit is treatment, it is recommended to choose tours with a weekly visit onsen, and even better – to stay close to the healing baths for 2 weeks.
