Saunas have a long list of health benefits, including the likes of decreasing stress, improving cardiovascular function, assisting with joint health, and even helping with skin problems. A special event taking place at Kanagawa's Zuiryusansosan Temple brings the sauna concept to the grounds for two days, utilizing the ultra-portable tent sauna style from Banya Japan.
There will also be other activities to enjoy including a bonfire, a cozy kotatsu area, bamboo illuminations, and Zazen meditation experiences.
If you're looking for a way to start the new year in a relaxed way, this event may be just the ticket.
Reservations for the Temple Sauna event can be made online here – do note that prices differ depending on the experiences you want to take part in.
