Naked Among 50 Japanese Men at a Bath House in Japan
Being completely naked among a bunch of Japanese men at the Oedo Onsen Monogatari is a unique experience which you shouldn't pass up during a visit to Tokyo
During of my last days in Tokyo I spent taking a relaxing bath at a hot springs called Oedo Onsen Monogatari in Odaiba.
It was one of my most awkward experiences yet. When entering the bathing area I wasn't under the impression that I had to go in compeletely naked with 40+ other Japanese men.
I even brought my swimming trunks but those weren't allowed. I had a tiny towel to kind of hide my private parts but I am sure everyone was starring at the only foreigner in the bath house and onsen.
The sauna was super hot, I was literally boiling, the Japanese can take a lot of heat - it much be their genetics.
Oedo Onsen Monogatari is a natural onsen (hot spring) theme park in the Odaiba area near Tokyo Bay. Visitors can experience 14 varieties of baths including indoor baths using water from natural hot springs that gush up from the source 1,400 meters under ground.
In addition, everyone from children to adults can spend the day strolling about in casual yukata robes through the Hirokoji and Yaoyacho shopping arcades that recreate the vibrant bustle of the Shitamachi (downtown) section of old Edo.
