Im not comfortable bathing in front of others. Can I still enjoy the baths at a ryokan?
Of course! A great option for those not comfortable with bathing in a public area, some ryokan offer rooms with private ensuite open-air baths. These baths are attatched to individual guest rooms and use the same type of water as the larger public baths. We have assembled a list of ryokan that offer such rooms. Notice:To book a room with a private open-air bath, select a room with “room with private open air bath” listed under the Plan column of the room reservation page at ryokan in the following areas: Ryokan with ensuite private open air baths: by Popular Area Mt.
