It is a skin treatment cream passed down from before the war using hot mud from Chinoike Jigoku (Blood pond hell). Even now, we still have the pictures of soldiers coming to get the mud instead of typical injury ointments. The history of Chinoike ointment goes back very far and the oldest record available dates back to the Meiji period. At the time, mud was put into seashells and were sold. It is available for sale only within Chinoike Jigoku facility and is the most popular product with many repeaters.
