More interesting was watching people scramble to try and catch a photo or two of the passing tourist trains!

    ... to not stare, don't touch, don't feed and use caution when taking photos so as not to upset the monkeys. I was happy to have released my expectations earlier in the day because my second stop was to Fushimi, known for its orange beams and crossways. It was stunning. And the paths lead all the way up a mountain. They changed in sized and depth, but they were always the same. Pure orange on one side, prayer writing on the other. After doing the monkey ...
