    ... turned as red as the gates I'd visited yesterday. They smiled and covered their giggles with their hands. Downstairs looked more promising. I found the gift shop! The store sold fans encrusted with gold leaf and gorgeous paintings of cranes, trees, and Hokusai's famous The Great Wave off Kanagawa. The shop sold anything from earrings, to bracelets, to post cards. My favorite were the spinning tops. Once used to entertain the female elite, the spinning tops had ...
