The fountain is there to wash your hands with cute extended bamboo cups. Can't remember what the big lantern is. Picked up my fortune here aswell - in english, woo!
Checkout the elaborate biscuit machine!
And first beer in Japan. Damn it was good!
Woo first day out in tokyo and it's just like a manga. Wires everywhere and low buildings. Thundergods in the archway columns. And people always seem to wait at the zebra crossings even when there is no traffic.
I loved this little ritual offering. You could stick your own gold leaf onto the Buddha - it was like you were /allowed/ to make your mark on a giant public monument!
There's a theme in buddhism of multiplicity and many million incarnations with minute differences.
Not sure if what posing here is sacriligeous actually. Hope not!
