Japanese Ramen Spa - Wordless Wednesday







Hakone Kowakien Yunessun, a spa theme park located in Hakone has a "ramen bath" in which visitors can relax. The bath is shaped like a giant ramen bowl, and its contents appear and smell like pork ramen soup. The water contains collagen and garlic extracts, and theme park officials claim it can help produce beautiful skin and aid moisture retention. Here are some pictures of their green tea bath, their coffee bath, and their red wine bath.

  16. Nice! I just posted my Wednesday! I am looking forward the Holiday! Hope you have a great one!

  17. that is a lot of red wine if they actually use red wine. i believe they use chemical components rather than real red wine lar.. cos real red wine would've caused a lot of problem - u can't soak yourself in alcohol for too long!

  23. I had this horrible thought that they'd use that "bath water" to make actual ramen soup later on -- essence of human added! eek!
