Japan spa offers ramen bath

Ramen lovers in Japan can now take a bath in a tub full of ramen thanks to a Japanese spa. From Reuters:
Because of health regulations, the Yunessan spa in Japan's hot spring town of Hakone does not use edible noodles.

Instead, noodle-shaped spa treatments are placed in bath water that contains elements from pork broth supplied by a nearby noodle shop.

Spa officials say taking a dip in the noodle bath is good for health as ingredients in the broth such as pepper collagen help improve the bather's metabolism and cleanse the skin.
