Travel Tips and What You Need to Know
The Famous Onsens
The term onsen is the Japanese term for hot spring. Mind you, there are many onsens in Japan, considering the degree of geothermal activity in the said country.

In most places, there are onsens that are separated based on gender, though there are a few that have mixed for tourists or for private use. So if you want to experience the Japanese culture, try soaking in the hot, soothing spring waters to relax your body especially after trekking or doing rigorous activities.
