This book is a celebration of the Japanese bath in every form - fragrant cedar tubs, boisterous public baths, and remote hot springs - through a profusion of full colour and monochrome photographs and illustrations. The text presents the history of bathing in Japan, its lore and customs, and accounts of visits to baths throughout the country. Travel information on 200 hot springs recommended by the author is included.
