Our second #JapanLife destination on our 2011 Spa Tour is the Four Seasons Tokyo, Chinzan-so. This escape is set in the middle of bustling Tokyo yet tucked into the Chinzan-so gardens- also known as Camelia mountain – doesn’t that sound gorgeous?
And how about this for an escape eruption? Their Yu Spa boasts Tokyo’s only onsen with Izu mineral water (pure volcanic water from the island of Izu!)
SpaHome It!: If you’re creating your own snuggly spot at home, but don’t have “built-in” accommodations like at the Chinzan-so, flank a bench or chaise with two small tables topped will tall urns or sculptures – instant cozy!
Who cares about eating when you can lounge in this grand space!
Finish the day with Yu Spa’s signature indulgence which decongests, stimulates and boost your body’s systems. Vichy water therapy combined with a full-body exfoliation invigorates and deeply cleanses. Then you are wrapped in aromatic cloths on the luxurious Java Indonesian bed in the private Yusui Suite. THEN, an anti-ageing Elemis tri-enzyme resurfacing facial to help instantly resurface and smooth the skin. Wow!
Stay Tuned. . . .later this week we’ll:

Sound good? See you then,
Live, Love and Lounge, Candy
