Naked lessons in a Tokyo bathhouse

Going to a public bathhouse used to be a big part of the culture in Japan but they aren’t as popular these days. One man, Yuichi Tamura, is trying to bring them back and in an unusual way. Yuichi offers classes on all sorts of aspects of Japanese culture at his bathhouse…but students attend naked. Outlook’s Alessia Cerantola has been to meet the founder.
