Synchronized Swimmers in Little Baths Make the Perfect Ad

Japan’s Oita prefecture aims to leave an impression to those who are looking for their next vacation destination. Pulling out all the stops by hiring the best possible candidates to advertise their greatest assets, Oita hired professional synchronized swimmers including Olympic gold medalist Raika Fujii to highlight a dozen of their hot springs (onsen). The swimmer’s high-energy splashing, kicking, and rotations are a sharp contrast to the serene atmosphere baths are usually
known for which is exactly what makes the idea captivating and downright quirky.
