Japanese Spa Offers Ramen Bath to Guests

The majority of tourists go to Japan not only for the beautiful sights but to have a taste of their national food – ramen or Japanese noodles. But apparently, eating ramen is a thing of the past since a spa theme park in Hakone, Japan began offering ramen to their guests, not for them to eat but for them to bathe in.

Yunessan Spa House provides giant ramen bowl filled with pork broth and synthetic noodles where visitors can soak themselves in.

In an interview with the Time, the owner of the spa, Ichiro Furuya, claims that the broth aids in improving the guests’ skin condition. “Lately people are very concerned about having beautiful skin and they know the effect of collagen, which is contained in our pork-based broth. At this bath, everybody can have fun and take advantage of the healthy elements of ramen noodles.”

The spa house that introduced this unconventional ramen bath is not new to introducing spa “treatments” that guests wouldn’t find anywhere else in the world.

Apart from the ramen bath that does wonders for the skin, patrons can also enjoy the benefits of “drink-themed” attractions such as bathing in green tea, red wine, Japanese sake, and coffee.

Guests can enjoy a unique experience bathing in popular drinks while enjoying its health benefits. According to the Huffington Post, bathing in sake or rice wine is good for removing freckles and age spots. Green tea, on the other hand, is beneficial for improving one’s immunity and overall skin condition.

Note that the water in the drink-inspired baths are not mere colored water but actually contain the actual drink. Every bath, however, comes with a written advisory that guests shouldn’t drink from it.
