Wandering around ③ Observe the manners and fully visit the temples

In this season you'll have many opportunities to go visiting temples, both in spring special visits and night visits.

Talking about "sightseeing manners" during your holiday might seem a bit strict to you, but you do not need to worry if you just have common sense.

Taking pictures only in designated places, avoiding touching things such as old objects, exhibits, buildings, etc. is basic common sense, so please stick to it.

Since the buildings themselves are a cultural asset, it is important to make sightseeing as light as possible, so that your luggage or body will not touch walls or sensitive monument parts.

Also, you should avoid bare feet when you visit inside a temple or a monument: put a pair of socks in your bag beforehand, and only then go sightseeing.
