Watou Yokohama Reviews

Get ready for some dirty cleansing. Oct 12, 2014
Watou Spa is located in the Tsurumi Ward in Yokohama, near Kawasaki Japan. For the cost of $80 USD for a 30 minute session, you can enjoy the pleasure of getting buried up to your necks in a heated soil pad roughly 20 by 10 feet and 3 feet deep. You will don on a special hooded suit covering all of your body and most of your face to maintain clear sweat flow. It is complete with shower room to wash away the impurities of your body. Customer service is friendly but you may have to learn some Japanese as they don't normally cater to foreigners. English is a barrier for this small business. I highly recommend Watou because I have never experienced anything like this before and the session was very therapeutic. I plan on going again once I return to Japan.

like a frog immersing itself in boiling water. It is hot enough after the prescribed 30 minutes. I think you may have the option to do it for a longer time.
