... borrow umbrellas and without them we think we would have looked like walking snowmen before long. The snow was very deep but the shop keepers and the gardeners at the temple were already out clearing paths through the snow. We had an English speaking Japanese guide leading us around the temple. We walked through the main gates and into the grounds and then to the main hall where having removed our boots we walked up the side towards the main alter before descending some very ...

... the wearer who is sitting down. Then we could speed up.

... opportunity to punish me. So, with much dread, we entered Seria. No, not the wartorn epicentre of unrest in the middle-east, but a much calmer store, where everything costs 105 yen, or around a dollar.
