My second time back at the Manyo Club hot spring baths in Yokohama but this time armed with the Lumix LX3.
For those who are not familiar, the Manyo Club is an 8 story building located in Yokohama filled with leisure facilities and hot springs (Onsen). More info in English and how to get there in the previous Manyo Club article.
One is issued with a locker key which has a bar code. The barcode is scanned like this at devices dotted around the building for when you want to pay for something. The bag is used to carry your shoes. Like most traditional Japanese facilities such as a ryokan, shoes must be removed before entering the building.
Kazoku Buro is a family tub filled with hot spring water. You can rent one for the family at 3200 yen per hour. But you need to book in advance at least an hour ahead.
Before heading for the hot springs, you get to choose which Yukata to wear. The ladies get more choices.
Once you pick up your yukata, you head to the mens or womens onsen. You must remove all your clothing before entering - if you are shy about other people looking at your dolphin or eyes then you probably should avoid. Do bear in mind that you occasionally bump into others who may take a fancy to you and stare at your dolphin or eyes...
Males who physically bump into another person inside the onsen by accident may need to disinfect their dolphin afterwards. If you want to avoid being bumped into, just walk along the wall with your back facing it.
Mixed onsen hot springs are known as Konyoku ]and you can see some examples at Google. The image of Konyoku however is that of elderly ladies with long saggy eyes but lately, there seems to be more young girls don't seem to mind sharing while wearing nothing but a soft n tender birthday suit.
This may sound like heaven to some but there were some men on 2 channel who complained about nekkid girls getting in the same hot spring as them.
How about you? Are you fine with others of the same gender seeing your lil bro or oppai? Would you be fine in getting into a mixed Konyoku where the other gender can see your yummies?
Catching up on some manga. Still on Makenki 1.
