Question: if the whole family takes turns in the same bath, the water cools down, and the last one should get completely cold? This is not true, because Japanese baths keep the water at the right temperature for as long as you like. Filling the bath is also very simple – at the touch of a button. No taps are provided, just set the desired temperature, the bath will fill with water and beep when it is ready to receive the owner. Some especially economical Japanese bath water is poured into the washing machine after use.
The order of “bathing” is determined by seniority in the family: the father is first dipped, then the mother, after them – the children. But if there is a guest in the house, they will let him in first as a sign of respect.
