Relax after a day on the slopes.
Be ready for the following day.
The Onsen experience is one of the best things about a ski holiday in Japan.
These, often natural, hot springs are the focal point of many Japanese communities. People will come to clean themselves, relax, and even socialise.
Following a day of skiing there is nothing better than soothing your aching muscles in an outdoor hot spring bath.
You bathe naked, except for a small modesty towel if needed.
Always wash thoroughly before entering the bath.
