Only one country would do this…

Wine in the bath

Tough day?

Take a deep breath. Relax. Then step into a pool of lukewarm wine.

(it’s a Japanese concept) Oh, ok then.

At Yunessun Spa Resort in Hakone, Japan, customers have the chance to “cleanse” themselves in a variety of unorthodox hot tubs.

The tub full of red wine is apparently good to rejuvenate your body, and along with coffee, green tea and sake filled pools, the ‘unique health benefits’ are set to outweigh the extreme oddity of it all.

So, what do you think – are Japan ahead of the game, or has the alcohol just gone straight to their heads?

I actually love the idea, just so long as no one offers me a glass of cloudy Shiraz afterwards.

Until next week super-soakers.
