Japanese Tourist Attraction - ABSOLUT ICEBAR TOKYO

Have you even been to an ice hotel? Would you like to get inside one when it is hot in summer? Well, this is not an ice hotel but an ice bar. This is the first permanent year round ice bar in Japan. It is located in Nishiazabu, Tokyo.

Inside this ice bar ABSOLUT ICEBAR TOKYO, you can enjoy your drinks serviced with crystal clear ice glasses. All the ice in this ice bar is directly transported from the Torne River in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. Oh, my goodness! Ice from Sweden? So when you touch the walls, the tables and other things, you are touching ice made with water from Sweden!

Temperature inside ABSOLUT ICEBAR TOKYO is kept at minus 5 degrees Celsius all year around. This is why we will be given capes to keep us warm. I just wonder what the temperature of the washrooms will be. Still minus 5 degrees Celsius? I hope not.
