Japanese Baths Collingwood

I spent most of the day in a 42 degree bath in the Japanese Bath House in Collingwood with a group of girlfriends. I have not been to the Japanese Baths in Collingwood in ages.

If you have never been to the japanese baths, I highly recommend it. Yes you have to nude up, but the environment makes up for it. In this day in age of 3 minute showers, it was a guilty pleasure to scrub up and do a total body exfoliation and then sit in a 42 degree bath for an hour!

We also booked in for a half hour Shiatsu afterwards, but it wasn't enough (is it ever enough?) ... Afternoon tea was spent at Birdman on Gertrude Street followed by stroll down Smith Street and a visit to Smith Street Bazaar and incu8tor gallery.

Overall a relaxing day. Tomorrow we are hoping on a day trip to Daylesford.

Pardon my ignorance, but I had no idea there were Japanese Baths in Collingwood. Have they been there very long?
