If you’ve never been to a Japanese spa before, think of it as a modern day version of the traditional Japanese hot springs experience. You can bathe in big pools, eat tasty food and desserts, and just relax and unwind after a hard day at the office or…a tough time battling demons!
This summer, the smash hit anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has teamed up with the nationwide RAKU SPA chain for an epic collaboration running from early July until late September–spanning 33 different locations across Japan.
Visitors to RAKU SPA during that time will find a massive amount of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba-themed activities, life-sized character standees, limited edition goods, and special food menus (yum!), including dessert, of course.
Let’s break down some of the highlights.
Dry off with these Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba hand towels ($6.51 plus admission fee). There are 10 designs to collect over the course of this two-part collaboration event!
For $4.65, the first 80 people to show up on any given day can rent yukata robes styled after the clothing worn by Tanjiro and Nezuko in the anime! Can I just…have all of these?
Do I smell something good? That would be the special dishes on the collaboration menu…
Pick between Zenitsu Agatsuma Cheese Curry ($14.74), Inosuke Hashibira Steak ($27.72) and, maybe best of all, Giyu Tomioka Ramen complete with blue (!) colored soup broth ($13.76).
Desserts include a dazzling array of ice cream soda floats and collectible character cups, at $6.05 each. They’re so adorable!
Just make sure you save some room for the Tanjiro Matcha Chocolate Cake and Soft Cream set ($9.11) and the Nezuko Sparkling Jewel Panna Cotta Parfait ($10.05).
There’s also lots of limited-edition goods showing Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba characters getting their spa on, including posters ($9.30 each), additional hand towels ($9.30) and keychains ($8.37).
And don’t forget those life-sized character standees placed throughout the venue, perfect for photo taking and selfie time!
The Demon Slayer x RAKU SPA event runs from July 8 to September 30 in Japan.
Promotions, goods and items vary from location to location so best to check out the Official Collaboration Website for the full details and more pics!
