Hot Spring (Onsen)

kanko

 An onsen is a term for hot springs in the Japanese language, though the term is often used to describe
 the bathing facilities and inns around the hot springs. As a volcanically active country, Japan has
 thousands of onsen scattered along its length and breadth. Onsen were traditionally used as public
 bathing places and today play a central role in directing Japanese domestic tourism.

 Onsen come in many types and shapes, including outdoor, rotenburo or notenburo) and indoor baths.
 Baths may be either public run by a municipality or private (uchiyu) often run as part of a hotel, ryokan
 or Bed and Breakfast (minshuku) .
