Soak in Japanese Bathing Trends at Rakuzaya Spa“New spa fads pop up all the time in trend-obsessed Japan, where bathing is almost an art form. Rakuzaya, a women-only Western-style salon, is known for its germanium mineral baths, a craze that took off after Japanese celebrities swore by their rejuvenating properties, and yomogi-mushi, a Korean-style mugwort (pictured) steam bath that eases acne and stiff muscles. It encapsulates what makes Nihonbashi so interesting: there’s an infusion of foreign elements, yet it remains Japanese at its core.” – Tokyo resident and AFAR.com Local Expert, Jon Sheer.
