Since the bath is a community space, please keep the following points in mind.
・Before you enter the bath, wash your entire body in the shower. Get nice and clean.
・Some communal baths are very hot. Getting in too quickly can be uncomfortable, or can cause a sharp rise in blood pressure.
To avoid these issues, and to get yourself used to the temperature, use a washtub to splash some of the water over your body prior to getting into the bath.
・To keep the communal bath clean, don’t put your towel in the bath, or even let it touch the water.
・If you have long hair, please keep it tied up when you’re in the bath.
・Refrain from taking pictures in the bathing area. As you can imagine, many people would consider that a violation of their privacy.
・Many people simply want to relax quietly in the water. Refrain from talking too loudly.
・Refrain from wearing a swimsuit (or any other clothing) into the bath.
Please do your part to keep the communal bath clean and comfortable for everyone!
