Tao Te Ching Chapter 15-1 Dark Depth / video
In the old days, a man who knew well about Tao comprehended Dark Depth minutely and subtly. (Ch.15)
When you visit Japan, I hope that you will have some time to go to an onsen, a traditional hot spa resort.
This symbolises what Japan is.
Hospitality, warmth, tradition, and a bit of promiscuity.
A bit of contradiction as well.
You may be able to find an old onsen ryokan (a Japanese style hotel with maids in a kimono) with a gigantic wooden bath you share with other visitors. Then, you will find an old Williams pinball and a Space Invader video game machine half abandoned in its amusement hall.
Kusatsu, where I shot the photo above, is one of the magical places in Japan. A splendid memory guaranteed.
Please ask me if you need some advice on your choice of a onsen in Japan.
As for the text of Today's Tao video, please visit Dark Depth / Tao Te Ching Chapter 15-1.
Tao answers your question!
