That's true - this is a specific pool, and would be an amenity offered, usually to the public next to the sidewalk out front ( usually anyone walking by can stick them in) not an overall feature - like a drinking fountain. Sometimes they are inside, in a common waiting area, so if you decide not to bathe with friends, you can at least soak your feet. Perhaps amenity=foot bath? Maybe it's not best for bath type then.  I dunno. 


PS @dieterdreist - I found the mailing list! I'll be asking about that civic land use shortly.

> not sure if this is really a bath type, my suggestion would be to make it a pool:type or something similar, as it seems to be not refering to the complex as a whole (what I think onsen is) but to a part of an onsen, i.e. a specific pool inside the onsen? Or maybe I got you wrong? bath:type=foot_bath to me suggests a foot_bath only place...
