Ramen Instant Spa?

While I've heard of everything from chocolate body wraps at Hershey Park, to nibble fish treatments in China (which we reported on last week), this is the first I know of a health resort that's tried to recreate the experience of cooking up a bowl of Ramen noodles. According to TheCellar, bathers are expected to find the peppery aromas and brown water (intentionally colored that way to resemble pork broth) comforting. Of course, the Ramen noodle bowl is just one of the many unusual food-themed spa experiences you can have at Japan's Hakone Kowakien Yunessun park. Other baths include a beer bath, a green tea bath, and a disturbingly red, red wine bath. Link via the always terrific TheCellar.
