All you want to know about Onsens in Japan

The picture accompanying this was taken today (Jan. 9)  in Hakone by Stripes Okinawa writer Tetsuo Nakahara. He's spending his time today soaking in the Onsen pictured as part of his "research" for a story he's writing for our Jan. 22 issue. It's a tough job, but someone had to do it. So if you haven't been to one of Japan's thousands of Onsens or if you're not sure of proper Onsen etiquette, make sure you read Tetsuo's article in Stripes Okinawa or on this website.
