The picture above, which looks like a swimming pool, is called "Hot Spring" that is a traditional bath in Japan. This huge bath often placed in the outside as it is made to take bath with beautiful view such as nature. It really reflesh and relax our body. It can be mentioned that there is nobody who hates hot springs in Japan.
Most of Japanese-style inn have such hot springs in general. These inns are normally located in a place being able to see the great nature, especially in such countryside.
(Inside of an inn)
If you visit the inn, you may be able to eat healthy food, which is picture below, that is our typical meal in old days. (Of course we eat them in these days, however it's not really common food to eat as usual.)
Picture above is also our traditional food calld "Tempura." It is fried vegitables and sea food such as shrimp. We eat them with soy-based sauce.
Plenty of hot water in hot springs is pure water heated by magma in deep under ground or in a volcano. So, such hot water is very good for our body as it can make skin smooth and pains such as lower-back pain ease.

The object in the picture above is exactly a pig as you notice. He is a pig that you may be able to see when you visit Okinawa, a famous island in Japan. (Okinawa prefecture is an island.)Okinawa is one of popular place to travel among Japanese, especially high school students as they ordinally visit there while a school trip. There is a great nature and an unique traditional culture.
Don't you think it's very beautiful? The water seems to be emerald green normally in Okinawa even with its purity.
Since pork is well-known as a food which make our skin sleek in Okinawa, the average of consuming porks is very high. So, the reason why tourists see the pig with decoration many times is that it is one of the symbol represents Okinawa.
As I told above, many people eat porks. However, their traditional way to eat is a bit different from ours. You know? The picture above is TAILs of pigs. The citizens have their meals using tails such a salad without feeling disgusting unbelievably.
Also, they eat SNAKEs as one kind of meat. For instance, there is a restaurant that gives costumors a humbur ger steak using them.
How do you think what it is? Of course, I'm not talking about food anymore. Hahah This is a famous talisman to protect people in Okinawa called "SeeSaa" means lion. This is a picture of a temple in Okinawa. It's not a traditional shape of Japanese temple since the culture in Okinawa is more related to Chinese culture. (Okinawa island is very close to Taiwan and China.) It is an aquarium in Okinawa. It's wonderfully fabulous. There are many huge boxes with the plenty of the water to display many marine organisms. I really love to visit aquarium...
