What is the difference between onsen and sento?


#1

The difference between the two may be confusing for foreigners. “ Onsen ” means a hot spring. At an “ onsen ” spot, a hot water is always taken from a natural hot spring. Most of “ sento ”, on the other hand, use tap water heated by boilers.

A life dream is to spend a night in a ryokan with a private onsen (because I can’t change in front of my own sister let alone nakedly bathe in public)


#3

I’m a big fan of it

What’s the difference between a stoat and a weasel?

A weasel is weasely recognised, while a stoat is stoatally different.
