Open-air lava bathtub / Kyoto Ryokan ShoeiThe bathtub in our large communal bath is made from Japan’s famous Mt. Fuji lava that has been processed into tile-like shapes. Mt. Fuji is known for its beauty but its lava is also rich in substances such as iron oxide, iron (II) oxide, calcium oxide, manganese oxide, zinc and copper and it also emits far- infrared rays. Therefore, taking a bath in our bathtub is equivalent to basking in the sun without the damages of getting sunburned.

Fuji lava bath invigorates all parts of your body and enhances your health and beauty. It is also known to sterilize and kill germs, as well as to help break down neutral fat, a belief in its effectiveness for those on a diet.
