<Hakone Kowakien Yunessun>

At the garden in front of Yunessun,

Why YUNESSUN is that popular to public???
Coz it always has collaboration campaign with various companies in Japan
to create some unique and interesting baths!

the green tea  "Nama-cha" bath next to Amazake bath, 
is held by KIRIN, a brand popular of its beer!!!
Let's try!

Whether its function or color, it is a perfect combination of red wine and hot springs!!!
You might know the ingredient in red wine is good for beauty!
