+1 to Tobias.

I feel it needs clarification for this tag scope.

I think it was "leisure=hot_spring" once,
and switched to "natural=hot_spring".
So the main purpose of this scheme is now "natural".
Like to represent a geyser or some natural features, it seems.

So it is better to make another tag scheme to represent "Onsen" ♨ bathing

Many Japanese rural "tourism=hotel" has Onsen amenity.
And there is "amenity=public_bath" already.

# Some Japanese mappers use "amenity=public_bath" to represent "Sento".
# "Sento" is like a spa, but more daily used amenity.
# http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sent%C5%8D

In my opinion, to represent a "Onsen Hotel",

or some combination. (yes, this is very draft!)
