Japanese Spa Fills a Swimming Pool With Wine


Japanese Spa Fills a Swimming Pool With WinePhoto credit: UPI Photo/Keizo Mori

The picture speaks for itself ladies and gentlemen; the Japanese are clearly onto something here. In what I’m convinced is a homage to Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining”, UPI is reporting that a Japanese spa has filled a swimming pool full of red wine. The red wine supposedly offers health benefits including “relieving fatigue, moisturizing action and anti-aging”. This clearly wasn’t a thrown-together idea as they even have a MASSIVE wine bottle pumping fresh water into the pool. Apparently children are allowed into the wine-pool as a little person is pictured kickin’ it with who I’m assuming is his mom. Things are certain to get awkward when that last bit of sediment comes out the end of that giant wine bottle and clobbers the guy sitting under it in the head, but other than that this seems like a winner of an idea.

    What a goddamned waste. The kid’s probably peeing in the pool.

    The ultimate relaxing experience, drinking and floating at the same time.
