Leonard Koren on the Japanese Bath in the Denver Post

Leonard Koren, design philosopher and author of How to Take a Japanese Bath (a classic just re-released by Stone Bridge Press!), was quoted in a Denver Post article on custom-built baths:

"Cleansing is the secondary aspect of the bath. You wash your body outside of the tub ... The soaking is the relaxation aspect of the bathing ritual. You don't want to pollute the clean water with your dirt."
