Onsen!

Japan is basically a big string of volcanoes. Consequently, there's a ton of geothermal activity, resulting in hot springs. These hot springs are turned into public baths, or Onsens. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onsen

I went to my first onsen today. It was very relaxing. If you would like to re-create the experience at home, here's what you can do. First, get a bunch of your male friends together. Okay, good. Now take your clothes off and get into a bath together. Bam, Japanese culture. Enjoy.

Is it imperative to have the bath?
