After leaving the station, I was given the red carpet treatment as the Toromi decorated Ryohoji itasha pulled up!
Of course, this is a temple, so some places are rather normal for a temple.
While some others only show their "moe" side after a bit of closer inspection.
Much to my surprise and delight, I was then invited to come with them to the CLAYZ office later. Before leaving I interviewed Toromi and Nakazato (Their interviews will be included in a separate article.) We then headed out once again in the Ryohoji itasha to the CLAYZ office.
Afterwards we returned to Ryohoji where I looked around a bit more. At temples it's traditional to have "omikuji" where you receive a paper with a fortune written on it. At Ryohoji though, things are a little different...
After that it was time to head off, once again I got star treatment by being escorted to the station in the itasha. Toromi kindly gave me advice for the rest of my trip and said to be sure to let her know next time I visited Japan. Thanks to Toromi and everyone at Ryohoji for a day I'll never forget!
Look forward to part 2 with an interview with Toromi-chan and Nakazato Nichikou, Head Priest of Ryohoji!
