... 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 ...

... for quite some time, and I was beginning to suspect that she wasn't coming back, but she eventually returned carrying a bunch of ice-cream tubs for us.
