Guests at Yunessun Spa in Japan are treated to baths of tea, wine and even soup.

The Hakone region of Japan is home to many an onsen, or thermal spa, but Yunessun is most definitely its most unique. This themed spa offers all the usual trimmings, including a replica Roman Bath and a miniature Aegean Sea, but its food and beverage-themed baths are the star of the show.

Yunessun is home to green tea, coffee, red wine, sake and even ramen noodle soup baths, and it's not just food colouring and lights. Guests are actually swimming in the real thing, but it's best to just take their word for it rather than tasting it for yourself. Consumption isn't allowed, and it's unclear why anyone would try.

The slow-drip coffee is brewed on the premises, and the sake comes out of an authentic wooden barrel. It's alleged that all of these liquids have beautifying and detoxifying properties, and while it's not proven that they do, it's also impossible to prove that they don't. The beverages are poured into the pools in a splashy spectacle to which guests are invited, and spectators are guaranteed to go home covered in their favourite drink.

For those who've never dreamed of bathing in their favourite morning pick-me-up, there's always the Open-air Scenic Bath, a relaxing, elevated pool overlooking the Hakone mountains, or try the waterslide at Rodeo Mountain.
