OFR48 Performing in an Ofuro

OFR48 Performing in an Ofuro

What do a Japanese pop group and a specialized bus in Finland have in common? They’re both all for singing in the sauna!

Rocket News from Japan tells us about OFR48, a new, all-female pop group made up entirely of workers at Ofuros, or urban Japanese bath houses. The OFR in their name even stands for ofuro.

The performances started as a way to make customers feel more willing to approach the staff of the bath houses: An awkward experience because the bath customers are naked. The clothed female workers serve both the men’s and women’s sides of the spa.

The performances began in the bath houses around Tokyo. They were so well received that the group has gone on to perform at larger venues. They plan to release their first single “Our Customers are Naked” in May. Their music video for this performance follows.

Meanwhile Russia Today reports on naked Finns singing — while driving. An enterprising tourist company spent € 30,000 (US$ 39,000) renovating a 1986 tour bus into a mobile sauna paradise. The bus holds 17 passengers who can either enjoy the sights of Lapland or sweat their ride out in a wood-fired sauna installed in the bus. For everyone’s enjoyment the bus features a karaoke system allowing its passengers to belt out tunes as sweat pours from their body.

Should you find yourself near Rukatunturi, Finland, you can hire the sauna bus yourself. See our database for more information.

So enjoy your sauna and keep singing.

What happens when the devil learns of a sauna loving farmer, who says that he can handle the heat of the hottest saunas in the world?  Find out in this tale narrated by friend of SaunaScape, Dr. Stephen Colmant.

Perhaps this should be included as another benefit of frequent sauna use?

Of course, the Devil is smarter than this: When that farmer came back to Hell after passing on, the Devil would have had one of these or these warming up for him. Noooooooooooo!

We happened across this comic from Scandinavia and the World, drawn by Humon, a twentysomething Dane. She’s drawn a comic with the normally reclusive, mute and knife-weiding Finland hosting his neighbors, Sweden, Norway and Denmark for an authentic sauna session.

It goes to show that not all Scandinavians think the same about the best way to enjoy a sauna as the Finns.
