A onsen (温泉) is a thermal bath Japanese. They are hot baths from which water is generally resulting from sometimes famous volcanic sources for their medicinal properties.
The onsen are places of relaxation and relieving, and often propose, in addition to the bath itself, the possibilities of lodging and restoration. Essence remains nevertheless the bath itself, of which the most appreciated are located outside, vis-a-vis a preserved landscape, and built out of natural materials the such stones and wood.
The Japan being a volcanic country, the hot sources do not miss and one can find a little everywhere onsen in the country, sometimes concentrated in thermal cities (Gero, Beppu for example). One always finds a onsen sufficiently near to the city there to spend a weekend of short holidays and to thus make a pause resting between two working weeks.
Inside the onsen , as in the Sentô , nudity is of rigor and the people present have for any clothing a towel which can be used as mask-sex, even if decency is not setting around the baths. Since the end of the XIXe century and the protests British, the onsen are not mixed any more, except some exceptions.
