Top ten places to go skinny-dipping
Traditional onsen, Japan –
Japan’s tradition of hot-spring bathing is enshrined in the nation’s culture. Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Japan bubbles with volcanic activity and there are thousands of bathing houses serving locals and tourists alike. The Japanese view onsen as the perfect stress buster, a place to unwind and shake off the city’s shackles. Naturally, you can only do that if you’re naked. If you’re prudish most onsen offer single-sex bathing.
To help you plan ahead, www.secret-japan.com
has a database of over 100 onsen from around Japan, complete with entry fees and opening times.
