Cave, Okutama

Jun 09 2002

Deep down in these caves you find all sorts of little shrines and things. Here’s a spot where people use the mud to stick famously light one-yen coins to the ceiling and walls. Of course, I climbed up and stuck one on there, too. Hiroko was not impressed. There was also another little shrine where some famous monk set up chimes to sound when water dripped on them, and another where people piled up hundreds of flat rocks like the danged are supposedly made to do in Japanese hell.
