Korean Bath Houses

Korean Bath Houses are a pretty interesting cultural education. You can learn a lot about the culture there. I’ve been a couple times, but it’s just a little too out there for me. Being naked with a bunch of naked Korean ajummas and halmonis is a little overwhelming. 😀

I’m going to add some interesting pictures to this post. Most of them have been posted on other blogs, so I will try to include the links to the original article at the end. They are all very interesting stories of people’s experiences in these types of bath houses.

    • Yes, I guess so. My husband did bath house in Japan. He was used to Korean ones, so didn’t have a problem with being ‘sans ropa’! Haha…….on a very person note…..do you use the bathhouse regularly? I think current generation doesn’t go there too often. It’s a fun topic;-)
      Thank you for your comment T Ibara!

      • You’re right, younger people don’t go as often (not as popular), and to answer your question, I don’t use a public bath house regularly (I also prefer the privacy of my own home) However, ‘onsen’ hot springs are lovely! 😀

        Best wishes,
        Takami
