Bathe In Fake Blood At The Evangelion Hot Springs


This month, the Hakone Kowakien Yunessun resort in Kanagawa, Japan rolled out a special Evangelion themed hot springs.

In Evangelion, the Second Impact is a huge explosion in Antarctica after which the oceans run red with “blood.”

At this onsen (hot springs) resort, the water in the slides and cave baths are coloured red. This same onsen has red and brown baths to simulate soaking in wine and coffee.

Another part of the resort replicates the amber colour LCL fluid that enables pilots to connect with their Eva units. 

The Eva collab runs until September 30. 


  • If you’d like to experience the LCL pool without flying to japan, just head down to your local community pool.

    Well who knows someone that can smuggle me out of victoria to japan?

    I swear all the really cool collaboration stuff in japan happens through that late spring to late summer period where i sure as heck don’t want to be in japan (or at least would prefer planning a trip at other times of the year).
