Soy milk hot spring, only in Japan


So what can you do in Hakone Japan that you can’t do anywhere else in the world? Bathe in a huge tub of soy milk. October 12th was the soy milk festival in Japan. To celebrate, an onsen in Hokone Kowakien provided soy milk baths for their guests.

Soy Milk Hot Spring

I have heard that milk is good for the skin, and spas do offer milk baths. I have a hard time seeing myself in a tub of milk. I know Americans dont have the same hot spring, soaking, desires that many in Japan love. It’s probaly due to the fact that we live in such a rushed society. I can’t even remember when I actually sat down in a tub. Can you?

  1. I haven’t sat in a tub for a long time. I didn’t even go in an onsen the last time I visited Japan. However it’s on my list of things to do next time (which is soon!).

    I saw a place that also lets you bathe in wine!
