One thing in Japanese culture is that you can not forget “Sento(public bath)”.
For foreigners, I think that there is resistance to going out with naked relationships with others, and some people worry about hygiene, but if you come to Japan / Kansai so much, it is certainly a traditional Japanese culture Please experience!
Quality control of every hot spring facility is severe, inspection and cleaning of water quality of several times a day are surely done, and you can experience the pleasant Japanese hot spring facility culture.
I think that many of the Japanese who went on a trip to a foreign country are slowly warming their bodies by accumulating hot water in the bathtub.The hot spring culture is rooted in the Japanese people, so we do not feel resistance to naked association, so please relax and have fun.
In each house in Japan, a bath to store hot water in the bathtub is installed, soak in the hot water of the bath and heals the tiredness every day.
Japan is an island country, with many volcanoes and plenty of water, I enjoyed a natural outdoor bath from long ago.
Even now, there are “Sentan” at various places in Kansai. Recently, a lot of “Super Sento” which is large in scale and can provide meals and relaxation space is made.
Among such super-public baths in the Kansai area, I would like to introduce the recommended Kansai’s “Super Sento”, which is good access by train or a free bus for pick-up from the nearest station.
