Alright ladies, so you’ve spent all day at the office, or out running errands, or cleaning up house and cooking for everyone and taking care of the kids, or maybe even all of the above. Now you want to reward yourself, unwind, and relax in front of the TV or with a good book. Why not let this group of good-looking fellows help you recuperate?
After all, that was the thought behind the creation of the TV show "Men’s Onsen," and what could be more rewarding than watching this handsome bunch, clad in nothing but towels, taking a dip in one of Japan’s many hot springs?
Okay, yeah, actually being there with them would be nice, but we’re trying to stay realistic here.
In July this year, broadcasting station BS Japan brought to the world the greatness that is "Men’s Onsen," a television program aimed at women which follows a group of five "ikemen" (good-looking men) as they travel to various onsen hot springs and inns, complete with many a steamy scene in the bath.
Members of the cast include:
Masahiro Kuranuki Actor; Age 32 Kura-san, as he is called, is part of the theatrical group TRASHMASTERS.
Takeru K-1 fighter; Age 24 The “bad boy” of the group with the charming smile, Takeru is a multi championship-winning pro kickboxer.
Yasuhiro Tanaka Actor; Age 28 Always cheerful and full of humor, Yasu is the mood-maker of the group.
Takahiro Kato Actor; Age 27 Taka is an actor and member of the dance group Dairakudakan, founded by famous Japanese actor and film director Akaji Maro.
Shota Omori Part-time worker; Age 22 The youngest of the group, “Morisho” aspires to be a novelist.
From November 18, you can take all of the boys home with you to enjoy any time you want, with the full first volume of "Men’s Onsen" on DVD for sale at Amazon Japan for 4,536 yen. Or, if you’d rather just enjoy some eye candy for half the price, you can get the photo collection for just 1,512 yen, for order online or at bookstores across Japan.
Enjoy 80 full pages of handsome, muscled, towel-clad men, or join them on their relaxing, fun-filled hot spring adventures as often as you’d like on DVD.
