Thought of the Day - Lots of little papers

75802-944776-thumbnail.jpgIn Japan a lot of the temples and shrines charge a nominal entry fee of a couple dollars.  They give you a little entrance ticket.  Here's a bunch of the more colorful ones I picked up.

In Kyoto alone there are over 2,600 Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.   I think the City of Kyoto ought to offer a 'Temples and Shrines' passport.  Visit them all, and get a free t-shirt or something.  Considering tourism is Kyoto's biggest industry I think this is a good idea for them to encourage more visits.  Kinda like the 'Round the World Tour' you can do with the 110 beers on tap at Old Chicago's pizza restaurant.
