Today we’re at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. The shrine has an excellent website that tells a lot about the shrine’s history (built in 947) and etiquette for visiting, which can impart a more meaningful visit as you understand the rituals you may take part in, including hand washing and ringing the bell.

The shrine also is the site of a flea market held on the 25th of every month. We visited on Christmas day of 2015 and found all sorts of odds and ends to keep us browsing for the entire morning — everything from swords to steamed buns to seaweed. Have a look around.

More tomorrow,
