Yakuso; Medicinal Herb
Sento; Traditional Bathhouse
As you know, the Japanese are the longest living people in the world. The secret lies in the traditional Japanese therapy that has been passed down since ancient times. The two main traditional medicines in Japan are bathing and Japanese herbs. These wonderful folk remedies were completed in the Edo period and spread to the common people.
Edo was once the world's most populous city, as well as one of the cleanest cities in the world and a health-conscious city. There were many large public baths, and everyone went there every day. A large medicinal herb garden was in the middle of the town, and medicinal herbs used every day were planted in temples and mansion gardens. The remnants can still be confirmed at our feet in the big city.
