    ... went to practice on an unused court.
    After a few minutes, I could see Hiroko was busy and the boys were just taking the odd shots. I, and Wendy could see I was itching to do it, so I wandered over to them and ran a few fun drills I invented over my years of coaching. Basketball is universal, in that you pass, dribble and shoot.

The actual temple when you get there is a real whopper (I later found out that this is the largest wooden structure in the world) and still only 2 thirds its original height!! The temple houses a 20 metre high bronze Buddah, which crazily seems in no way out of place inside such a monster structure.

    Lots of Temples and steps!
