... in this area there are Maid Cafes that have young women/girls dressed as maids. There is usually a girl or two on the sidewalk handing out leaflets inviting you in.

Just as I thought every business that wasn’t a 24/7 convenience store was closed I turned a corner and found that an entire street leading to the temple was cordoned off by the police. A few shops around the entrance to the temple were open and a few popup stall littered the footpaths. As I entered the temple the whole world changed!
