In Japan, most homes are equipped with Japanese-style baths, but not necessarily showers. The art of getting clean in a Japanese bath (or _ofuro_) takes some getting used to for most foreigners.

Step 1: Fill the bath
Fill the ofuro with water heated to between 102 and 104 degrees Fahrenheit, which is much hotter than typical western bathwater.

Step 2: Rinse yourself
Rinse yourself thoroughly in the washing area outside of the ofuro before stepping into the bath.

Tip
The 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 bath
Step slowly into the ofuro and make yourself comfortable. Savor the warmth of the bath.

Step 4: Exit the bath
Exit the ofuro when you have had enough or become too hot.

Tip
Dry 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 water
Do 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.
