Walking from the Gion area back towards town we crossed this river.

A doll shop suggested we try this mall, but we never found any appropriate umbrellas for the doll.

There's a buddhist shrine right in the mall. We guess the shrine predates the mall and the mall was built around it.

This is a full shrine with a Buddha and everything.

A few stores down there is a pathway that leads to a graveyard! We think the sticks seen here are left to commemorate the buried person.

Really big leeks.

This photo is a little dark but this is Shinto shrine, again right in the mall.

This is inside the mall shrine as seen in the previous photo.

Allyn is doing the ritual cleansing.
