Best Tattoo-Friendly Japanese Onsen In Tokyo That You Need To Visit!

Tokyo is the capital of Japan and probably one of the most advanced cities in Japan, so naturally, it would be one of the most populated cities in the world. 

Tokyo offers attractions and welcomes people to experience the Japanese culture. However, there are certain things that should be taken into consideration like tattoos.

Tattoos are often a stigma in Japan, especially in bath places like onsens. The banning of tattoos has been included in the history of hot springs, denying services to people who have tattoos to visit.

This rule still remains today and it has led to much curiosity. First things first this should have not been guessed as a rude gesture but Japan has had a long history with crime-related characters. 

In this day and age, some onsen facilities have opened their services to people who have tattoos and allowing them to enjoy the comfort and happiness of Onsens.
