When I came out from touring the temple, I was surprised to find lots of stalls being set up in the outer courtyard of the temple complex. As I was there on a Sunday morning, this must have been a Sunday market - but I am not sure whether it happens every Sunday.
In typical Japanese style, all the stalls are very neat and tidy. There were stalls selling food, clothing, organic vegetables, furniture and other nick-knacks.
I particularly liked the stall selling potted plants - the plants are so well groomed !
