Thx all!
I'm very surprised Onsen is in the Oxford Dictionary :)

So I would add following description table and some samples to
"amenity=public_bath" page in next a few days.

* bath:type = onsen
** amenity has bathing amenity, and the waters from natural hot spring.
Common in Japan. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onsen

* bath:type = foot_bath
** foot_bath is usually are a (free) service offered in the front of the
onsen to passerbys. It's very shallow, and surrounded by seats, it's like a
big sink, rather than a pool. "Ashiyu" in Japanese.

* bath:open_air = [yes|no]
** bathing amenity which has "open air" bath. "Roten buro" in Japanese.

> Sento is basically a bath from heated water, right? so basically
amenity=public_bath, right?
Yes. so I'll make a comment for it as samples.
