Hot Bath in Japan

If there’s one thing the Japanese have mastered, it’s the art of fire and bathing. And these two men do not disappoint. Yasuyoshi Chiba’s triumphant photo of two men bathing in this makeshift ofuro captures the passion of this long-standing tradition. Even if Kesennuma city is in ruins, taking a hot tubby is not only making the best out of a difficult situation, it’s necessary to the human spirit!

Rubber duckies are made for the water. They are made to swim, to splash around in the bathtub, to make kids happy. A rubber duck out of water is like a dog without a bone.
