“Foot Soaking” by guest blogger, Tony Alexander

Foot soaking. One of the quintessential pastimes in Japan, as illustrated in Al’s article ‘Museum foot soak‘ at the Hakone Open Air Museum.

Here one can gain an insight into one of the simplest forms of pleasure in Japan; so in tandem I wanted to also guest blog about another example of foot soaking entitled ‘warming the feet‘ over at The Soul of Japan.

Like Al, I have a penchant for fine pleasure. We both understand what it feels like to be on our feet all day and then relax in a hot open air foot bath surrounded by nature. The only thing you have to remove is your socks; that’s it. And of course it’s good to carry a small hand towel with you. I also recommend a nice Tenugui, a large Japanese style handkerchief which can fit neatly into one’s purse or pocket.

There are foot baths all over Japan, so whenever you have a chance knock your socks off.
