A Night in a Japanese Inn. h
We entered the village, which 0
was once a city containing over
a million inhabitants, and put up
at a native hotel, kept in native
style. Obeying the custom of
undressing the feet, we passed w
many guests sitting on matsand 0
making the chopsticks fly in a
way that would make a Yankee
envious even in a railroad eat
ing-house. Upstairs we went,
and were shown into a room
whose walls consisted merely of
paper, partitioning one room
from another, but which were
scrupulously clean. Ordering
supper and some native wine, we
were quickly served by a rather
good-looking maid. While wait
ing the result of our order, we
were served with "tidbit" pastry
land with some sack-ee ; also
bowl containing live coals, to
gether with pipes; after which,
giving us time for a smoke, the
courses began with 'fish not
cooked enough for our taste;
then eggs, chicken, sweet pota- 3
toes, rice, and tea. No bread
was served us, nor butter; but,
as the tea was remarkably fine,
and as the eggs, though small,
were duly seasoned with rock
salt, we made a good maln- 1
dered awkward by lack :-ex
perience in-using the hop sticks,
which were pencil-shaped, and
used by holding or pressing the
food between the -ends, the
guests meanwhile peep ng
through the partitions and gig
gling at our frantic efforts to I
eat gracefully. While eating'
per, the. Governor of the 1
ce sent a constable to obtain 1
our name and residence, that
we might be under police pro
tection, we being the first white
mien that ever spent a night in
the place. Suipper being over,
we took a short walk through
thl town, and, as there weire
many pilgrims in the place who
had never seen a Caucasian be
fore, we were the "obse
all observers," especially'
friend, an Englishman,' whis
six feet two inches in his stock
ing feet, and was a giant among
them. Going back to the hotel,
our friend asked as if we wished
a bath and slhmpoo. Answer
ing in the a~roative, he gave
the order, and hearing a low
and somewhat sad whistle, which
r we had heard both by day and
bY night in tokobama-which,
though it had excited our cari
osity, we had failed to inquire
Sthe reason of-he went into the
4r street and brought in a blind
er man, who, he said, was to6 do
i- the shampooing. The bath be
ing ready, we went down stairs
and were shown into a room,
whose wet floor proved it to be
u constant use. After finishiig
our bath, we donned our gown
and returned to our room,
where the "blind man" took us
Commencing with our feet, he
knuckled us all over, prygin
between every joint and mus
cle of our back rand limbs, ex
cept the reg ion of the chest,
and which, after he was through,
made us feel as limber as an
acrobat. The sun rose uncloud
ed on the following morning,
and after a breakfast served on
the floor, similar in quality to
the supper of theevening before,
we paid our bill, which amount
ed to $1 75-=this for bothof us,
including our wine.
