Wow. It must be a very interesting experience for you! You could see the contrast between two cultures :)

It was pretty weird at first walking around naked among everyone from all walks of life. But after a while, you realize that nobody actually cares and it becomes somewhat normal. I adjusted pretty fast I would say. Hahaha.

I’ve seen onsen on TV a lot in the past and I would actually love to visit one! I’ve seen sento only a few times on TV, maybe because onsen is more beautiful cause it’s open and in the nature…

Would love to meet someone from Medium! I’m planning to meet another person I know from Medium as well when I go back to Singapore, he’s from Singapore. I’m going to Hokkaido. Do you live near there? I have family who lives near Kyoto and she said it’s too far to travel to Hokkaido (she’s 70 years old). Hahaha.
