onsen & adept

Quotations:


Naps at work, second sleeps and shared bedrooms: How culture affects sleep:

-- "If colleagues go away on a trip together, it would be normal for them to sleep on futons in the same room together and to bathe in onsen (hot spring) together, and this would all be part of fostering intimacy and closeness — a sort of bonding, which is a very different approach to sleep than we typically have in the West," she said.

-- Japanese people are adept at sleeping in public

Definitions:

onsen: 
hot spring.
