Different cultures have particular customs associated with the bathhouse, as well as localized names: in Turkey they are called ''hamam'', in Korea ''jjimjilbang'', and in Russia ''banya''. A Japanese bath house (referred to as a ''sento'') will always have a large wall painting of Mt Fuji in the background, as bathing in the shadow of Mt Fuji is good luck. In modern Finland, the use of steam bathhouses called ''Saunas'' is not only a popular communal activity, but an integral part of family life.

Scenes come in two types: washing up (with extremely high chance of {{Fanservice}}) and then relaxing in the bath talking. Depending on the media, chances of [[SkinshipGrope "skinship"]] or [[HoYay Les Yay]] subtext are very high; guaranteed, in fact, if a female LoveableSexManiac is around. If a male LoveableSexManiac is present on the male side, expect him to try to sneak a peek at the girls' side, if the baths aren't already co-ed. On the other end of the spectrum, the bathhouse can be the ideal place to [[DeadlyBath carry out a murder]]: potential victims will likely be unarmed and vulnerable, and in the event of a struggle, the abundance of hard surfaces are a magnet for head trauma injuries.

CensorSteam is usually on, as well as [[CensorSuds conveniently placed soap bubbles]] (at least in the TV version--if there is a TooHotForTV version then these will be removed.) You may also see characters carrying a ModestyTowel into the actual bath (in RealLife towels are never allowed in, same as in Hot Springs).

This is very common in Japanese media since the country still has many public baths. They are usually used by lower class citizens who don't have a bathtub in their home (just a shower), or when the household's bathtub is not working. When going to and from one, expect everyone to be wearing a really plain [[UsefulNotes/{{Kimono}} yukata]] and carrying a bath pan with shampoo and conditioner… which can be used as a weapon if needed, and finally drink some nice, cold milk after they get out.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', the lawyer Estermann and the judge Mullan [[spoiler:and Lyra Heartstrings]] share a (modern, western, pseudo-Roman) one at one point. It's decidedly awkward, though not necessarily for all the ''expected'' reasons.

** The [[FemaleGaze male]] characters go to a bathhouse, and, since they're bored, decide to compare the sizes of their [[UnusualEuphemism "XXXXX"]]. The protagonist's is about average, while the [[MonsterOfTheWeek nearby captain of the kendo team]] is so beautiful that it appears as a cloud of sparkles and reduces them all to tears. Humourously, [[TheRival Papillion]] is there, [[GagPenis and his is the biggest]].
** We don't know if Pappillion ''is'' the biggest, as it was comparative and he was wearing a bucket on it as he was walking outside. (He's just weird like that).
