In Japan, Onsen are the country’s hot springs and the bathing facilities and traditional inns
around them. Most Japanese love bathing in Onsen (hot springs), and many believe that the water
can cure certain ailments. There are many volcanoes around Japan, and therefore many Onsen.
Each Onsen is said to have its own healing property. Onsen resorts or hotels either use water from
actual spring or they boil mineral water. Onsen resorts have opened all over the country, and many
hotels have outside baths offering spectacular views. Public baths are also very common in Japan.
They generally have Jacuzzies, garden bathe, and saunas. At Onsen, people actually wash their
bodies before getting into the water. It is bad manners to use soap or towels in the bath itself.

Long ago Japan was divided into many small provinces. The lords of each province fought to take
each other’s territory. Castles were built by the lords to show off their power and control their provinces.
They were both residences and military bases. They were made of wood, but used various defensive
devices for protection. For example, moats were built around some castles. In fact, moats around the
Imperial Palace in Tokyo, which used to be Edo Castle, are still preserved.
Additionally, many castles were built on plateaus or hills. The slopes were then steepened, making
them difficult for enemies to climb. In some castles the grounds from the gate to main building were
designed like a maze to confuse enemies.
The main castle building is usually in the center and is called the Tensyukaku (Castle tower).
They are tall and magnificent structure. The loads and their immediate servants lived in the Tensyukaku.

during the period of prohibition of Christianity in Edo period ( 1603-1868). Many Christians
were forced to apostatize to avoid being persecuted. However, some went underground secretly
to keep their faith, and some remained true to their faith in secret in remote area.
Some Christians disguised themselves as Buddhist by keeping an image of Virgin Mary which
looked like the Kannon, Buddhist deity of mercy (Maria-Kannon Image).
Some kept crosses hidden in their homes, along with Jesus disguised as Jizo-Bosatsu ( the
Buddhist guardian deity of children ). Suspected Christians were forced to step on pictures of
Virgin Mary and infant Jesus (Fumi-e) in order to prove that they were not Christians.
In 1873, during Meiji Restoration, the prohibition of Christianity was abolished after appeals by
