  • Comment from Mari Yamazaki
  • Since ancient times, exercise and bathing have been essential for humans to keep their mind and body healthy. The importance of bathing, which makes us feel the joy of living by taking off the various armor helmets that we wear in society every day, makes us feel the importance of bathing even in the current pandemic situation. It's just. There is no doubt that the power of the bath, which allows you to reset your mind and body, has influenced the background of ancient Rome's history of 1,000 years. Exercise, like the bath, is a wonderful possibility given to human beings under any conditions to express the joy of living. I wanted to show the importance of staying simple and energetic without imposing extra reasons or burdens on my life, so in this initiative of Milk Soap and BEAMS JAPAN, I tried to focus on exercise and bathing.
