Heaven on Earth: Japanese spa lets visitors SWIM in pool of red WINE

At the end of a long week of work, politics and general drama, there are few things more tempting than a glass of red wine.

But for those in desperate need of a pick-me-up, Japan has found the ultimate solution.

Images from the Yunessun Spa Resort of Hakone have been doing the rounds online after it was discovered that the spa is home to a swimming pool filled with red wine.

For those wishing to follow in the steps of Cleopatra, the spa offers the opportunity to bathe in a red wine tank which is filled by a 12 foot bottle of the good stuff.

Because red wine contains resveratrol – an antioxidant which stimulates cell proteins – visitors can avail of the anti-aging benefits of vino while enjoying a glass or two mid-soak.

And if wine isn’t your thing, the spa – which is located 100km west of Tokyo – will allow you to relax in pools of ramen, chocolate, green tea and coffee.

If there was ever a place to fill us with Wanderlust, this is most definitely it.
