Onsen Salts from Atami, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan

 

Japan has an abundance of natural hot springs (onsen, 温泉 ). There’s said to be 2,500 onsens dotting the island nation. Most onsens are communal, you are not supposed to wear any clothing and in most cases, you are not allowed to bathe if you have any visible tattoos. For those of us who dream of visiting onsen and who aren’t physically able to get to one, this product lets you relive and experience the onsen at home.

Atami is located in the far eastern corner of Shizuoka Prefecture at the northern end of Izu Peninsula on the main island of Honshu, Japan. 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 bathwater 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 and easing aching muscles.
