I came across the bathing rules signboard at the hotel I stayed.
It’s a good help for foreign tourists.

11 rules for bathing in an onsen

1:Clothes and slippers are not allowed in the bathing area.
Please keep your clothes in the lockers.
2:Please rinse your body in the shower area before using the baths.
3:Please do not enter with towels.
Please bind your hair up. So it won’t fell while you bathe.
4:Cameras and mobile phones are not permitted.
5:Please do not sleep in the bath and sauna.
6: Please remain silent while you are in the baths.
7:No tattoos and drunks allowed.
8:Please do not wash your clothes, nor dye your hair.
9:Dry yourself with a towel before leaving.
10:No food and drinks.
11:Always keep an eye on your children.

These are common rules for Japanese people but are helpful for foreign tourists.
I also add one more rule.
‘’Don’t wear swimming wear in the bath area. You should be naked in the baths.’’
If you come to Japan, enjoy Japanese bathing culture!
