Saturday Night Social: Take A Wine Bath

You’ve had a hard week. How about a relaxing bath in a pool of lukewarm wine?

In Japan, hot springs, or onsen, are a popular way to unwind without traveling too far. But just outside Tokyo, a resort called Hakone Kowakien Yunessun has taken the public bath to the next level, offering pools filled with wine, green tea, coffee and sake. The above video, courtesy of Hello! Japan makes the whole thing seem a little too child-friendly, making the idea of drinking the liquid seem poo-filled and terrible. But apparently people do it anyway.


Happy Saturday!
