When we arrived in Kyoto it was snowing. We made a big deal of asking around for a 100-yen shop, going in, and finding an umbrella. As we came out we saw that the snow had stopped, and I burst into laughter. Piroko made a point of telling me to bring the umbrella back to the USA, because they already had so many of them in Tokyo and she didn’t want the 100 yen to go to waste. I didn’t bring it back.
