Dear readers, you might yet again accuse me of lying, or, even more likely this time, of being a disgusting pervert, if I said I took off my clothes and got completely naked a couple of days ago in the middle of Sukhumvit. I hate to admit this, but it's true. And though I would like to claim that it was for a good and noble cause like protesting against human trafficking or animal cruelty, it was, in fact, purely for relaxation. And in case you're interested (of course you are!) in knowing the exact place where the naked incident took place, the newly opened Yunomori Onsen and Spa is the answer.
Set in A-Square (opposite to K-Village), just a few steps away from Flow House Bangkok, what drew me in wasn't only the fact that this is the first authentic Japanese onsen in Thailand, but also the outer appearance of the place: the grand bamboo wall is, to my imagination, how Japanese castle walls might have looked back in the day; its height and thickness somehow give the place a sense of mystery, making you want to know what's inside.
If you are the kind of person who browses in Muji store for hours with absolutely no intention of buying anything, just being there for the sake of appreciating its decor and trying out its furniture for free (but acting like you're buying one for sure whenever the staff happen to walk by), Yunomori's welcome lounge is the perfect spot to start.
