Water Spouting Dragon

Water - the source of life, and in some cases - tourism too; which can mean a source of livelihood to the community involved.
The smell of sulfurous water at Bessho Onsen; one of Nagano's classic onsen resort town was a tad funky, but it is said to have beautifying prowess and clearing certain ailments, so I just pinched my nose and drink away. I need help in the beauty department, after all. XD

  8. If this is in a shrine, it is only for ablution, but I guess it is for drinking.

    .. Ah~ you had the water. I see.
    I need a time for getting English sentences yet.

    I think you don't need to force yourself to drink the water because you must be beautiful already. ^^

  9. Japanese proverb says,Good medicine is bitter in the mouth.
    In old days,it is said Dragons would spew out water when a fire would break out.
    Is it a good experience?

    It is indeed. But medicinal stuff are almost always tough to take. ^^
