    ... as were the next two, until it was decided to leave the statue in the open air. Anyone interested in the statistics can find them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C5%8Dtok u-in

    You can see the scale of the thing from the photos and the fact that there can be about twenty people inside the statue at any one time.

    We moved on to see the Hasedera temple, set on a hillside, in a small but beautiful garden. The temple itself is a ...

After staying at the Marriott hotel in Beijing, our room here in Tokyo was a bit, shall we say.....underwhelming. It also had an ashtray. Deep breath.
