Traditional Japanese Bath “Kamaburo”
Many Japanese people love to take a bath. So there are many kinds of bath in Japan. For example, Sand bath, Herbal bath, Onsen hot spring, so on.
I tried to take a “Kamaburo” bath after seeing autumn leaves in Sanzen-in Ohara Kyoto this Thursday. Kamaburo has a history of over 1300years. It was used not only relax but also recuperation for old emperor and aristocracy a very long time ago.

02:Take a Kamaburo with ceramic pillow
