THERMAE ROMAE – Japanese love bathing (銭湯 sento)



Japanese baths and hot springs are unique in that people do not clean themselves inside the bath. There are, however, some important points to remember about using a Japanese bath. First, you should be naked; please do not wear swimsuit in the bath. Once you have entered a bathing area, rinse your self with water before entering the bath. Then, enter the bath and soak for a while to warm your self slowly. While bathing, Japanese people inadvertently say, “Gokuraku-gokuraku” because they become so relaxed, in their hearts and souls, that they feel as if they were in heaven. The Japanese go to hot springs not only to clean themselves, but also to soothe their fatigue at the end of the day.
