I woke up super early after having a bad dream about embarrassing myself in the onsen and decided it was time to face the onsen. I walked downstairs and into the onsen area, nervous about how busy it may be. Thankfully it wasn’t overly busy which made me feel a lot more comfortable. I walked into the onsen, stripped off (eek!) and sat in a little booth and gave myself a quick rinse (onsen etiquette 101).
I then hopped into the onsen and relaxed in the springs. I was surprised at just how normal the whole experience was at that no one seemed bothered that there were naked people walking around and bathing. The whole experience was totally liberating and surprisingly not uncomfortable at all! BUCKET LIST CHECK!
