For many Japanese people, taking a bath is a relaxing moment of the day and, as you can imagine, there are thousands of products that also turn bath time into a fun time. A wide variety of salts are used to liven up baths and many products look so delicious that you almost want to eat them:

Curry Cubes
Japanese people love curry and the dish plays an important role in Japanese cooking. Supermarkets sell cubes of curry used to prepare dishes at home and curry bath salts look exactly like these cubes. They also smell exactly alike and are just as spicy. Also, as the salt dissolves, a hidden figure is revealed and you can collect 12 different figures. There is also a raffle where you can win a cushion shaped like a piece of Nan, a typical Indian bread.


Kushiage, Bath Fried Food
Kushiage is part of a bath salt collection called Fried Foods from Frozukin-cyan (that’s their mascot’s name). Kushiage is a type of tempura with toothpicks and these packs hide little figures inside the yellow salts, which represent what would be the fried dough. When you put them in hot water it looks like you’re frying them in the bath tub. Once all the salt dissolves, which would be then end of the frying process, the Kushiage figure that was hidden inside appears.

Doughnut Shaped Bath Salts
They work just like the other ones, but instead of getting a Kushiage figure once they’re "fried", you get doughnuts! There are different types of doughnuts... and you’ll want to collect them all. You can see how the products from the Furozukin-cyan series work in this video.



Bath Salts Shaped Like Popular Sweets
There are bath salts shaped like lollipops, like chewing gum, like an ice cream called Garigari-kun and like another very popular ice cream covered with a layer of rice cakes called Yukimi-daifuku. There are also bath salts shaped like Umai-bou, some salt crackers that more nostalgic Japanese adults love.

In addition to these delicious-looking food-shaped salts, there are also other types of bath salts that are equally fun: some are shaped like paper yen bills, others contain hidden Disney characters... You will find a clip of a Japanese program bellow where they talk about a ranking of bath salts and comment on which ones sell the most in Japan. At present, the fried food collection is a favorite in Japan.
