A long time ago ...thirty years, I went to Japan. There I was surprised by the custom of the Bath! The bathroom is generaly tiny , with a bath very hot 40°C and more with a wooden board over it to keep the water warm. Because you have to take a shower before you go in the bath . Once I went to Kyoto and stayed in a typical Japanese hotel and there was a collective women bath , I took this Japanese bath , but it was too hot for me , i was not use to it. ( i show you a typical bath)
This is my second bathroom , where i created a meditation corner!!!
