Cultural Melting Bath: Bathing Experience Program

The "Cultural Melting Bath" was built on the coast of Naoshima with the strongest flow of energy, based on the philosophy of Feng Shui. Every Sunday, guests (limited to one group) can participate in a bathing experience in a private setting. Please enjoy a time of relaxation and self-reflection while soaking in the herbal medicine bath.
