Guesthouse tabi-tabi provides a refreshing assortment of cleansers and toiletries that are earth and people friendly. All of our soaps are organic and biodegrable making them gentle on the skin and on the planet. In the shower you will find Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap. We try to rotate through the various scents they offer. Peppermint has an amazing cooling effect so it is great for summer. Citrus has a refreshing scent to perk you up, while almond smells good enough to eat. Once you start using Dr. Bronner’s you won’t want to use anything else. I’ve also got a bottle in my onsen basket at all times.
In the shower you can enjoy Avalon Organics Refreshing Cleansing Gel for the face, and organic shampoo and conditioner from Jason’s Everyday Hair selection Care. Once you get out of the shower you can try out the Avalon Organics Balancing Toner.
By the sinks we have organic hand soaps and in the kitchen we wash our dishes with Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds.We have a washing machine you can use for ¥200. On the shelf, above the machine, you will find Grab Green’s 3-in-1 Laundry detergent pods. Please help yourself.
We hope you will enjoy our selection of all-natural soaps and cleansers as much as we do!
The Travel Volunteer team, Katy and Jamie, came and stayed with us for two nights at Guesthouse tabi-tabi in Shimoda and one night at Lodge tabi-tabi, Hakuba. Here is a pic of Katy chatting with some local ladies in Minami Izu (just south of Shimoda). We had come to our usual sunset spot and ran into this cheerful gaggle of girls who said the clouds in the sky looked like an angel’s wing.
Katy and Jamie are on a mission to capture the beauty of Japan and report on conditions in order to relieve fears and bring the tourists back. You can follow their adventures through the 47 prefectures here. If you would also like to help Japan, report on the endless beauty, and experience the rich culture in the Land of the Rising Sun, you can apply for a 10,000 free airline ticket give-away!
