Mountain Temple Change

Åsa’s comment

Yamadera had an offertory box for worshippers, but for some reason, the mountainside was littered with coins people had thrown into it—right out of reach! I can’t say I get what that’s about… It was a really pretty place, though! I had a lot of fun!

*Some places do not allow you to throw money at anywhere other than indicated offertory boxes.
