Splish, Splash, Let’s Take a Bath!

Rest and relaxation is multi-million dollar industry in Japan. From quickie-massage parlors to specialized tea and candy, it’s the kind of thing that appeals to anyone trying to survive in this high-stress society.

You’ll find bath minerals, or onsen no moto, among the list of feel-good products. They come in small packets, perfumed by the scents of nature and catered to healing specific ailments like fatigue, aching muscles and nervousness. All you do is turn on the faucet and drop it in.

It doesn’t stop there. In an aim to cater to all demographics, there’s all kinds of wacky themes to these products. Here’s some of my favorites:003-00920-001-001It looks like a lollipop but please don’t eat it! Drop it in your bath and watch the color change to match the scent of strawberry, pudding, caramel or milk. A few lucky bathers will receive a rare and lucky flavor.

You don’t have to wait ’til Halloween to enjoy a scary bath. Pour it in and bathe in blood red! Monster figurine included.089-00915-001-001Wanna improve your love life? Well this bath’s for you! Scented with orange and cinnamon, you’ll find yourself feeling more amorous because this pack of minerals is blessed by the love gods.001-00818-003-0011Just like a box of Cracker Jacks, it’s just not the same without the prize. In the middle of this bag of bath minerals is one of 9 different Kewpie dolls. Of course there’s one mystery doll that only the lucky will receive. And last but not least…082-00913-001-001If people in India are having qualms about “Slumdog Millionaire” I’d hate to hear what they’d say about this product. Still, if you love curry so much you’d bathe in it then here’s your chance.
