The art of getting clean in a Japanese bath (or _ofuro_) takes some getting used to for most foreigners.Step 1: Fill the bathFill the ofuro with water heated to between 102 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit, which is much hotter than typical western bathwater.Step 2: Rinse yourselfRinse yourself thoroughly in the washing area outside of the ofuro before stepping into the bath. TipThe washing area outside the bath will typically include a hose shower. If it doesn't, remove water from the bath with a plastic bucket to rinse yourself.Step 3: Enter the bathStep slowly into the ofuro and make yourself comfortable. Savor the warmth of the bath.Step 4: Exit the bathExit the ofuro when you have had enough or become too hot.TipDry yourself with a towel after exiting the ofuro, or wash yourself with soap prior to re-entering it. Rinse the soap off so you do not introduce any soap into the ofuro.Step 5: Do not drain the bath waterDo not drain the water in the ofuro if others will be bathing after you. Japanese custom is that all members of a household use the same bath water.Did You Know?In Japan, bathing in a volcanic hot spring -- an onsen -- is considered a form of relaxation -- not a way to get clean.
