Nothing says relaxation quite like a hot bath and a glass of wine, so why not combine the two?
At Japanese spa Hakone Kowakien Yunessun, you can literally bathe in Beaujolais Nouveau. The hot-springs resort hosted a variety of eager visitors in celebration of the French holiday Beaujolais Nouveau Day, which rings in the distribution of the coveted Beaujolais Nouveau red wine.

RocketNews24 writes that guests were able to soak in a bath filled with twenty bottles of red wine mixed with water and drink to their hearts content. Overall, the spa used 20 bottles of the special wine between filling the tubs and glasses.
Last year, the same spa promoted the benefits of soaking in red wine and sake, claiminng sake could diminish the appearance of freckles, age spots, and skin discoloration while red wine baths could promote anti-aging effects.
Truly a dream come true.
