[字幕付き] Japanese Onsen! 温泉が苦手な外国人のため!

The kanji 銭湯 translates roughly to "hot water for a small fee". Sento are your neighborhood bath houses; a kind of proletariat onsen. They emphasize the social aspect of the onsen to a degree over the relaxing aspect, and such can be loud and boisterous at times. There is a belief among some Japanese that nothing builds bonds between people like having a chat together naked, and the sento serves as a place to build these bonds.
