The bath situation of Russia

A sauna in Russia

A sauna in Russia

Do you like to take a bath? Even if we are Japanese, there are different ways of how to take a bath. Which do you choose: going into bathtub or only using a shower?

Now, I would like to talk about the bath situation of Russia. Of course, in Japan, there are few houses which have their own sauna. But, I heard that homes in Russia have their own sauna!

This type of sauna is called like firewood sauna. The point is firewood. Russia is rich in nature, I think. Incidentally, the origin of the word 'sauna' comes from Finland.

The method of bathing is washing your body in the bathtub with soap. And after taking your bath, you have to put in new water for the next person.

I thought the difference of culture is interesting. If you don't understand other person's culture, you can't communicate with them. So, I always want to have interests in others.

Good day!

I want to tell, that not everyone has their own sauna, simply because it can be located only in the house. And to have a house you need a lot of money, hah :p

So. In Russia there are a lot of ways to wash. Usually we have a bath and a shower (2 in 1). If you have money, you can buy jakuzi, for example.

To be honest, it's tipical for Russian to have a bath with shower. That's all, really!

And sauna can stand in the countryside. Or you can rent one, or you can go in the public sauna (usually men go in it on the weekend, haha).

I like taking a sauna very well. But I think sauna’s good point is the time when I take water bath with mush sweating. So I can’t take a sauna in Russia.

Riko, I'm also interested in bath culture.

I started taking baths as a very young boy with my toy rubber ducky & toy boats, :-) and now as a grown man I still like taking baths almost every day.

Unfortunately, most bathtubs in America don't have an oidaki (追い焚き) reheating device, so we have to run a new tub of water every day.

I love the bathing and hot spring culture of Japan.... except MY bathtub is too SMALL for my body. :-)
