The Japanese have long celebrated the art of hot spring bathing as an opportunity to relax the mind, restore the body and appreciate the beauty of nature. Closure of the “onsen”, which costs 200 yen (£1) to enter and is famed for its panoramic views over the Hoki River, was confirmed on the website of the Shiobara Hot Spring Tourism Association . Fudo no Yu, a famous hot spring “onsen” surrounded by green mountains in Nasushiobara City, Tochigi prefecture, has closed its doors following reports of lewd acts being committed and broadcast on the internet.

 

 

  • Locals reportedly issued a number of complaints over the past year due to a number of visitors at the mixed-sex baths apparently exploiting the fact that there was no caretaking staff, with only an honour system for making entry fee payments.
  • Indulging in group sex acts, filming adult footage and taking voyeuristic photographs of other unsuspecting bathers were among the allegations of misconduct, Japanese media reported.
  • Key culprits were believed to be a group of more than a dozen middle-aged men and several young women who regularly visited the onsen at weekends, according to the Tokyo Times .
