Bathing at the oldest Onsen in Japan

Today we went to the Dogo Onsen area, Japan's oldest hot spring, boasting a 3000 year history.
We went to the Dogo Onsen Honkan which houses the ancient spring. The building was rebuilt in 1894 and I'm sure there must have been some renovations done over the years, because it was really very nice inside.

As usual, men and women are separated in the public bathing areas, and so Arthur and I parted ways in the hall. My area was a large pool, with a raised platform in ...

It was so cool! Some ...

We didn't exactly skip back to our hotel, though an afternoon snooze seemed appropriate in view of the travelling and the impact of the A-bomb. An evening's trawl around the nearest shopping mall came as an anticlimax, but relief nonetheless from the reality of what took place a few hundred metres ...

NICK: students say the darndest things!

A travel blog entry by niknash on Mar 30, 2007

... revolving around the fact Japan is not an Islamic-Judeo-Christian society. This creates a whole wealth of interesting and confusing situations for me. For one, things like abortion are non-issue in terms of legality - there is no strong opposition for it, and it's just known to be one solution to a problem that someone may be having. I guess you could probably say that most of the country is pro-choice. They'd rather not have an abortion, but the option is there. ...
