We did a day trip from Tokyo to Nikko, which is about two hours train ride away, up in the highlands and is full of Shinto Shrines and Buddhist temples.  It’s really spectacular; there should definitely be a scene set here in a future Indiana Jones film.  I bow-bow-clap-clap-bowed at a Shinto shrine and got a Buddhist prayer thing, so I hedged my bets and covered all bases.  Despite Mr Beet’s facial expressions, I tried the local delicacy of yobu (tofu skin).
