The world is full of different traditions and cultures that have various ways in which they take care of their hygiene. Some people may be surprised to learn that the Japanese culture has a tradition called “sento” or traditional bathhouses. These bathing facilities are much like your average modern day spa, but with one major difference: there is no water inside the building! The bathers bring their own supplies, including buckets of water filled from home, soap and towels to clean themselves off before leaving the building.
