  • Description

    Wearing only shorts and bathing suits, an association of Japanese spartans gave an annual teeth-chattering display of mid-winter ice-water bathing at Ichikawa, Japan, Jan 12.

    Claiming that they never catch cold, or suffer from rheumatism, thirty-six men and seven woman and girls assembled in a school yard to demonstrate their hardiness by jumping into tube filled with water, and seemingly enjoying being sprayed with hoses.

    Despite protestations of enjoyment it was obvious that the heavy overcoated spectators were more comfortable than the goose-pimpled spartans.
