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.
Noboribetsu Onsen is one of the three most famous hot spring places in the entire northern island of Hokkaido, quite possibly being the most famous one, and for good reason. It’s situated in the north-east part of Muroran City at the foot of the volcanic Mount Hiyori, and filters through more than 10,000 liters of hot spring water daily through its various onsens.
The bath powder for Noboribetsu is described as having the scent of “clear air wafting through the forests” with a “milky-white, snow-like 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.
