You can just relax and be yourself. The hot water is full brown caused by iron. And its taste is a bit salty. Many foreigners, especially asian, were in there.

It was our first onsen visit and we really enjoyed it - the place was much nicer, cleaner and friendlier than a Sento we visited recently! They are also tattoo friendly if that concerns you.

There is a normal Onsen I think but I still feel comfortable and related! Maybe I am foreign and walked harder! It's a great experience and good memory this year!

I saw a man, who is maybe Japanese, Korean or Chinese, had tattoo of 2 dragons on his chest in Kin no Yu last month. So possibly you can take the bath. But you should email to ask its bathhouse, just in case. Recently I saw... More
