Comes with a decorative bamboo basket.

How to Take a Japanese Bath book. Since its first publication in 1992, this book has become a curious classic, taking a simple (yet often incorrectly performed) activity and depicting it with a graphic, manga-style edge. In twelve drawings a young Japanese man is shown preparing, rinsing, soaking, communing, relaxing, contemplating―all an encouragement to readers to slow down, ease into the hot water, and enjoy this timeless ritual of purity and release.

This soft, absorptive, and quick-drying towel is an Earth-friendly evolution of the popular Lattice towel. By upcycling scrap fabric and recycled plastic bottles, it softens its overall environmental impact. Washcloth (S): 16.5” L x 16.5” W. Made in Japan.

Hinoki soap. An infusion of Hinoki cypress to reduce stress and take care of your nervous system. The Ten Thousand Waves Bar Soap is hand made with olive, soybean, palm and natural fragrance oils. It contains no mineral oil, alcohol, artificial colors or animal products. Made in the USA.
