Featured Onsens

Hot springs in Japan have had some high profile representation in the last decade or two with a steamy scene from the book movie Memoirs of a Geisha, as well as in the overwhelming and beautiful movie Baraka. The latter shows monkeys bathing in the hot springs of Nagano, which they regularly do in that location.

Usually, bathing is separated by species and gender. You can opt for the monkeys (I have heard), but I wouldn’t.
