... stay in Tatsue and then the last night in Osaka. The temple I stayed in is on the route for the pilgrims that wslk sround Shikoku. So it was a really different feeling than koya san. Not being a pilgrim I felt really out of place and noone really spoke any English. The head monk knew a few words, showed me my tatami room. The next time I saw him he had his fancy robes on and was chanting in the temple for ...

I am quite sure his real agenda is to propose to me! Eak better run. ;0) After dodging the marriage-bullet by using a mixture of English, Japanese and my favourite language - pure Nonsensish, I made my way outside. Surely I could find a cafe in the shopping arcades ...
... the contents were available to touch (and play with) including first grade chairs and tables, wooden blocks and carved names in the wall making it a much more tactile experience.
