Photographer's Note

One of the great experiences in Japan is an onsen - a hot bath taken outdoors if possible. The same forces that causes the earth quakes, tsunamis and that created Mount Fuji - the moving of the earth's plates, also generates natural thermal hot springs. The practice of taking warm baths in these springs has long been a part of the lives of people and monkeys in Japan.

This image is provided more for a record of the place and cultural note rather than artistic photo. If nudity were allowed here on TE, you would see my friend on the right of this cropped image. You're probably just as well off with out him.
