Today though was a totally touristy day. My mum and dad are here visiting (yeah!) and the three of us went up to Nagano City and 'did' Zenkoji temple. The best part? Meeting up with Brenda and the gorgeous Sara! Ok, that really isn't very touristy but it sure made the touristy bits more fun for me!
Oh and all three of us remain unenlightened having failed to find the secret handle while going though the pitchblack undertemple tunnel. But last time I went through (when I was 17) I absolutely cracked my head on a rafter, found the handle of enlightenment but saw stars, had a headache and felt queasy for the rest of the day so I still think I came out on top!
