    A Small Piece Of Advice

    Should we refrain from private talk in bedrock bath!?

    Do you know the word “bedrock bath”? “Bedrock bath” is a bathing method similar to a sauna where you lie on a warm natural stone and warm your body with infrared rays radiated from the bedrock. In Japan, Tamagawa Onsen in Akita Prefecture is said to be the original. The bedrock is set at 40 to 50 degrees, warming the body and promoting a large amount of sweat slowly. It is especially popular among women because it not only relaxes, but also relieves fatigue and beautifies the skin.

     

    Now,Komemama runs into Matsuko in the bedrock bath. Women commonly like talking. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is a characteristic of women to be able to talk endlessly no matter where they are. However, the bedrock bath is a place to relax, so you should refrain from talking there as Lulu points out. In addition, you need to be more careful because the voice echoes inside the bedrock bath. If you talk loudly, other people cannot concentrate on being relaxed. You need to minimize conversation and stay quiet in the bedrock bath.

     

    As a side note, talking secretly in a public place is called “私語(shigo)” in Japanese. When you watch the posters that say “私語厳禁” in facilities, you have to be careful not to talk as much as possible.
