Have a new type of bath, apparantely good for the skin, try 'NATTO BATH' exclusive to Japan.
... :-) Is this fake?!
If you dont know what Natto is, then Ill explain...
Natto is steamed soybeans that are fermented, sometimes in rice straw, until the beans have acquired their notorious nutty flavor, disturbing aroma and sticky slipperiness, held together like a spider web by gossamer-like threads. Its mainly eaten with rice, but can be put on toast, in miso soup, salads, dips etc... Its supposed to be not only good for the skin, but also help prevent cancer. People in Kansai hate it, people in Kantou love it. Its the East/West divide. Most foreigners hate it because of the smell, sticky-slippiness and the way it manages to keep with you long after you've eaten it.
Its going to be the wierdest food you'll ever eat (apart from Fish guts... urgh) but, if you are in Japan, you HAVE to try it!! I actually dont mind a bit on top of my rice to give it flavour. A bath or natto, however, must make you smell and feel pretty bad.
