How to take a bath, Japanese style! You are only to go inside the bath tub after you washed your body. Firstly, you are to rinse your body with hot water. Washing beforehand helps to keep the water in the bath tub clean.
The rinsing and washing of your body with hot water also acclimatizes you to the actual temperature of the bath tub. It is not advisable to jump into the water like diving in to a swimming pool. Please use discretion.
Bring with you the small towel that will be provided with you and please do not put the hand towel into the bath tub water. Most people place the towel on their head. And remember do not use any soap or shampoo or other skin cleansers in bath tub. * For more information about bathing etiquette, click here.
