Maple Syrup Bath: The Best Place In Japan To Sweeten Your Skin Until 25 April ’17

There’s just something special about the aroma of hot pancakes and melted butter in the morning, perking you up for a good day ahead. From now till 25 April 2017, it only gets better – there’s a maple syrup bath by Hakone Kowakien Yunessun in Japan that will leave you smelling refreshed and delicious.

This isn’t the first time that Japan has initiated food-themed baths and onsens; we still haven’t forgotten this awesome sake one.

Visitors are required to wear a swimsuit in this particular bath, unlike traditional Japanese onsens where people take a dip in the nude. That makes this maple syrup onsen a possible option for people who aren’t quite ready to go au naturale just yet.

While the bathwater will probably smell delectable, we don’t recommend you taste it, unless you want to weird out your fellow tub-mates.

Not that anyone needs a lot of motivation to choose Japan as a holiday destination, but this intriguing maple syrup bath surely makes the decision a lot easier.

Dates & Time: Now till 25 April 2017, 9am – 7pm

Price: From ¥2900 (about S$36)
