Float citrons in the bath

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.
