My friends invited me to join them last Sunday. I happily said yes, even though I wasn't sure what we were doing. I thought it had something to do with a shrine and some crafts. They picked me up at my apartment and off we went! After parking, the six of us looked at these maps and used the restroom (because we didn't know if there would be another).
Let the adventure begin....
The Flea Market/Farmer's Market
One day a month this community hosts a sale of prepared food and vegetables and all kinds of stuff. Yes, I did buy a few things. You'll have to go to the end of this post to see what I bought. There is a narrow curving road, leading up to the shrine and all along the way (miles and miles it seems) people are out selling and buying.
There were about a million of these little statues set into the hillside where you could leave a coin and make a prayer. It was such an interesting place with the waterfalls and moss - kind of ancient and a little bit spooky.
