Stopped here with some business associates on a Friday in March. It just happened to be March 3, which is special day for Japanese girls. On 3 March of every year, newborn girls are given a doll as a gift. The legend goes that you must donate the doll to a temple, when you turn 18. Doing so shall ensure that you will get married. The end result of this is that temples end up with a lot of dolls. This temple puts them on display every year from the beginning of January to the end of March. Every room of the temple was filled with dolls, including very elaborate doll houses, displays of paper cranes, as well as a bamboo forest with dolls cut into the center of the stalks (The legend of the princess in the bamboo - she flies away to the moon when the bamboo is cut). Quite an unexpected and awesome surprise. I am glad we got to see it!
