2. White Underwear
(We will lend you a white robe, and basically we wear white underwear under the robe. Colored underwear is allowed if you do not have white one. The robe will be wet and seen through a little, so if you do not like it, it is also allowed to wear a swimming suit under the robe instead of underwear.)

4. Fee
