A Resort in Japan where you can Bath in Beer
If you’ve grown tired of a regular old bath with bubbles and bath bombs, this Beer Bath with actually have you lying in a vat of Beer.
The Thinotani onsen is a hot spring located within the Misugi Resort. This Resort is about 2 hours from Kyoto, Japan and their main draw is their Beer Bath. The bath combines home made Japanese craft beer with hot natural spring water every 30 minutes resulting in a foamy liquid that looks like a dark lager.
As the Misugi website states, the Beer contains live yeast, carbonic acid and enzymes in the malt that will apparently soften and clean your skin, and the hops have an antibacterial power yjwybid also good for your skin. On top of that, the co2 in the beer is good blood circulation.
While the scientists have yet to actually verify these claims, the unique experience may still be worth a try, just for fun. A 45 minute session in the Beer onsen costs about $15, and the Misugi Resort suggests that you contact them in advance to reserve the bath. The resort also features a regular hot spring, along with the Hinotani Brewery, hiking trails and cooking classes.
