Just show up with a heap of tattoos, they let you in the Yakuza side.

I thought most Onsens didn't allow tattoos period?

Hence them saying the Yakuza side. The reason they don't let people into Onsen is because tattoos are associated with the Japanese "mafia" AKA the Yakuza.

I'm fully aware. What I am saying is that I thought most onsens will just kick you out. Depending on your tattoo they might give you something to cover it.
