There are many rules that have to be considered before bathing. The main rules are as follows: shower before bathing, make sure that your towel and hair don’t touch the water, and dry your body before going back to the changing room. At Funaoka Onsen they have a poster explaining these rules which you can read before bathing to make sure that you remember all of them.
Towels and shampoo are normally brought in by the patrons, but they also sell them at the reception.
