Swimming in wine

Japanes like Beaujolais Nouveau wine so much that they swim in it often.A hot spring spa resort in Hakone,a resort region near Japan's celebrated Mount fuji, is pouring the fruity red wine into one of its pools untill Sunday to celebrate the release of this year's product.
The Hakone Kawakien Yunesun is bringing out a real sommelier to pour a dozen bottles of the beaujolais nouveau,produced by france's cardier,into its open-air wine spa everyday.We installed the wine spa last year,and did the Beaujolais nouveau celebration.It was a great sucess,said seiji Sanda an official at Yunnesun.
"The aroma of Beaujolais is very pleasing,very nice.From the open air spa,you can see the mountains leaves turning colour and hear the sound of a nearl ravine.Its very pleasan,."he said.
Japan is the biggest importer of BeaujolaisNouveau with the wine sold every where from fine restaurants to convenience stores.Even though beer and Japanes sake remain far more popular than wine.
Beaujolais Nouveau has become seasonal fad in Japan,which this year ordered a record 11 million bottles.
Sanada insisted that the Beaujolais bath had real valu.Wine smoothens the skin and its aroma relaxes the mind,he said.The company said bathing in wine is a"rejuvenation treatment".It has been said that queen of Egypt,Cleopatro,loved to bath in wine.
