Many of the temple buildings didn't allow photographs inside but that did not stop them setting up trinket and souvenir stalls inside each of them wherever there was space alongside little boxes selling prayers, fortunes and other things for around 200 Yen a go. I don't want to sound cynical as I know they do need to get funding but it did get a bit much and somewhat spoiled the old atmosphere of the place
After taken my shoes off more times then I can remember to enter each of the temples I headed back to the lodge to catch the train which allowed me to do as all Japanese seem to on trains when not playing with their phones, sleep.
Back in Tokyo we had a few drinks while deciding to check out an Anime festival happening over the weekend since we were unable to get tickets to the Gibli Musuem (you have to book weeks in advance), but the rate at which we were going through Tokyo's local brew the chance of making it were quickly diminishing.
