Bathhouses have been in existence for almost 2000 years, with the Romans and Greeks at its European forefront, and the Japanese at the Asian’s. The Roman baths in particular, were known to have been extravagant architectural monuments that stood as an essential pillar of society. These were not just places to bathe and heal, but were a meeting grounds where business was conducted, social gatherings made, and philosophical discussions exchanged – all to help invigorate the body, mind, and soul. Most of the bathhouses were impressively designed and ornately decorated, while still all the while functional.
Japanese and Koreans were, and still are, known for their bathing culture and near obsessive dedication to cleanliness. Heated waters were believed to have the power to cure illness, while the bathing rituals would rid the body of any impurities found inside and out. As running water became more common within homes, bathhouses transformed into destination locations with many accommodations to complement the traditional water-based fixtures.
Despite this transition, bathhouses still remained more functional than full-of-frills luxurious, focusing on the fundamental traditions of achieving cleanliness and furthermore, health.
