There's just nothing like sitting in an cypress bath at 10 below centigrade at around midnight, alone and with an ice cold sake packed away in some snow right beside you,   in the middle of winter when everybody's deep in slumber.   Words cannot describe it.   I don't know if it's the smell of the hinoki; the natrium in the water, the winter pine freshness in the air..... Can't quite put my finger on it.    This is Japan.
