冬至”To-ji” (winter solstice) is on 22nd of December.
The shortest day of the year and Citrons bath day too.
In Japan, there is a custom to have ゆず湯”Yuzu-yu” ( Citrons bath) on winter solstce day.
The custom started in Edo period ( 17th century) as public bath event.
Still there are many Sento/public baths in Tokyo have Yuzuyu event on the day.
Not only for human but also capibaras enjoy it.
