¨JR East will launch the service in July, with one carriage on the "shinkansen" bullet train having two 2.4 metre-long tubs facing windows. Bathing is a ritualised and highly-prized activity in Japan and the footbaths are intended as places for passengers to relax¨


(see our video of a footbath on the street in Hokkaido, Japan here) Very relaxing!
