Japan has such an abundance of natural hot springs (called onsen, 温泉 in Japanese) that it’s become a national pastime to visit one just to soak the day’s stress away. There’s said to be 2,500 onsens dotting the island nation, and it’s customary for Japanese people to share the same onsen. For those who aren’t physically able to visit an onsen, this product essentially lets you relive the onsen experience at home.
Atami is located in the far eastern corner of Shizuoka Prefecture at the northern end of Izu Peninsula. The city is on the steep slopes of a partially submerged volcanic caldera on the edge of Sagami Bay. The name “Atami” literally means “hot ocean,” a reference to the town’s famous onsen hot springs.
Atami bath powder is described as smelling like “fresh fruits & flowers, mountains, and the refreshing sea”, and when melted, turns the bath water into a transparent reddish-orange colour.
Like all onsen, healing properties are attributed to the compounds found in the water, from relieving eczema to lowering your blood pressure, making onsen bathing a healthy way to relax.
Dissolve in hot water (200L) of the bath at a ratio of about 30g while stirring well. Please use the outer cap (the lower line on the inside is about 30 g) for measuring.
