    ... after a Japanese cross between pinball and a slot machine – which was essentially a 5 storey games arcade full of the latest arcade machines.

    Unlike British arcades, however, the Japanese still produce actual arcade machines so these were all brand new with the most recent titles – such as Mario Kart, shooters and beat-em ups.

    ... we had reached the top of the hill and found ourselves in front of two huge temples which looked out over Nara. As people were coming up towards the altars they would throw (literally!) a penny into the collection box, clap their hands, ring the copper bell which hangs down in front of the altar and then begin to say their prayers.
