"Japan has a lot of weird myths and folk remedies about colds. One of them is shoving a sprig of onion up your butt helps with fevers."

I mean it seems like a rather odd folk remedy, then again the Japanese do seem to jam more medicine in their bum than other culture. I've seen it a couple of times in anime and manga.

Actually, it's a prank the japanese used to pull on each other. Dead serious. It's where the 'thousand years of death jutsu' came from in Naruto. I dunno, saw it it some youtube video.

That's Kancho. It's different. Kancho is that prank of stabbing your fingers into someone else's butt.

This is sticking green onions up there, and it's a folk remedy for colds (and apparently other things possibly).

Why in the butt? well, because of good absorption into the bloodstream from there. But foods and soups/"teas" made from green onion to be ingested orally are also a thing.

That's kancho, basically equivalent to screaming enema while probing someone. It's a kids practical joke

I heard sticking chili peppers in your genitalia helps with a low sex drive. I saw it in a comic once.
