Holy water for washing your hands and mouth (if you wish) before entering a temple.

I stopped in this castella shop because they were offering coffee and a sweet of your choice from the case for only $3!

I stopped in this castella shop because they were offering coffee and a sweet of your choice from the case for only $3 - I got this white bean filled pastry.

This was one of the nicest parts of my day trip.  I was the only person in the cafe/shop so the woman working kept giving me samples of things and asking where I’m from, how I like living in Tokyo. She showed me some guidebooks and helped me pick the next place I would go (the botanical gardens) and then gave me a couple more sweets for the road for free. Sigh. Its so nice to meet such warm people outside of the city.
