Bathing water in Japan is not usually milky! Only if you add some special bath additive, it can be turned into a milky color.

Also, some natural hot spring baths are naturally milky due to the particles in the water.

Usually in the evenings only.

I haven't noticed any difference in home bath water in the Japan vs at home in the US.

I wouldn't trust everything I see on movies and dramas, of course there's always additives, bubblebaths etc that can be used in effect of the characters on the show.

Tubs in the media 2007/7/30 03:33
Tubs in photos and TV are often milky so that whoever is butt-naked inside won't have to be embarrassed.

People who bath in the morning are considered lazy. It also consumes a lot of heating energy. But nowadays, many people bath in the morning as long as they have the time.
