If you want to only use the open-air bath you have to buy a ticket at this ticket vending machine. Towel rental tickets can also be bought here.
You have to wash your body before you enter the bath. Going to the bath without washing your body is bad manners. Also, because this is a communal bath, if you have long hair, remember to put your hair up, so that your hair won’t go in the water. Don’t wear a towel to the bath.
*Those with tattoos can’t enter the baths.
*Children who still use diapers can’t enter the baths.
*You can’t wear a swimsuit to the baths.
*There are no private baths.
